Workers are seen at the damaged site of a Saudi Aramco oil facility in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia, September 20, 2019. Saudi Arabia took media to inspect oil facilities hit by attacks that Washington and Riyadh blame on Iran, showing melted pipes and burnt equipment, as Tehran vowed wide retaliation if heightened tensions boil over into hostilities.

The kingdom sees the Sept. 14 strikes on its Khurais and Abqaiq facilities -- the worst attack on Gulf oil infrastructure since Iraq\u0027s Saddam Hussein torched Kuwaiti oilfields in 1991 -- as a test of global will to preserve international order.

Iran denies involvement in the attack, which initially halved oil output from Saudi Arabia, the world\u0027s largest petroleum exporter. Responsibility was claimed by Yemen\u0027s Houthi movement, an Iran-aligned group fighting a Saudi-led alliance in Yemen\u0027s four-year-old conflict.
