French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian stated on Thursday that the scenario of Yemeni Houthis attacking Saudi Aramco oil facilities isn't very credible, APA reports citing Sputnik.

He also urged to conduct an international probe into the attacks, stressing that there is a pressing need for de-escalation.

Note that a drone attack that occurred last week has caused a considerable drop in the kingdom's net oil output, subsequently affecting global oil prices,

Riyadh and Washington claimed that Iran was behind the strike, while Tehran stated it was performed by Houthi militants.
