Moreover, Al-Malki presented information on the Iranian crimes against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the use of its arms. "You will see in the slide more than 113 citizens lost their lives due to Iranian weapons provided for their arms in the region and you will watch damage to civilian objects and infrastructure in the Kingdom, he said, pointing out that the attack against Biqaiq and Khurais facilities is an extension of previous attacks that took place on May 14, 2019. You will also watch that the Iranian regime is attacking the civilian infrastructure and thus attacking the global economy and world trade routes.
This attack is similar to what happened on May 14, 2019 against Afif and Dawadmi and is evident through our investigations. Our allies have shared us disclosing the type of the drone, an Iranian Delta type, similar to what was used in the last attack as you see it.
Al-Maliki also presented some of the photos and images obtained from the surveillance systems in the site, which have proved the type of drones used in this attack and that its range of movement was from north to south and this is evidenced by surveillance cameras.
He presented a number of weapons used in the attack on Biqaiq, which was an Iranian-made aircraft from Delta Wong. This is a qualitative capability. These are some of the components that have been recovered from the site with analysis and study by experts in the Ministry of Defense. Sharing some of the information extracted from computers suggests that the industry and technology used in the drones are Iranian.
As for the second attack on Khurais, the slide presented by Al-Malki shows the damage targeting the facility with cruise missiles, and this is evidenced by the accuracy of this attack using the capabilities of the cruise missiles.
