The worlds largest petroleum processing facility in Saudi Arabia was hit by drone attacks on Saturday.
Several projectiles struck two major plants which started a series of fires.
The attacks have caused disruption to the global oil supply and the world is feeling the impact as oil prices reached four-month highs.
Bongani Bingwa talks to international law expert Danny Bradlow for insights into the significance of the attacks.
How big the impact of the attacks will be, depends on how long it takes to restore the facilities and what reserves the Saudis have to fill the gap.— Danny Bradlow , Professor of International Development Law and African Economic Relations - University of Pretoria
He says Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group has claimed responsibility for the Saudi attacks however, the United States is blaming Iran.
The Americans are claiming that they have the evidence to prove that it was the Iranians but that is not necessarily true and it could be either one of them.— Danny Bradlow , Professor of International Development Law and African Economic Relations - University of Pretoria
