Severna Park, MD – 25 SEPT – Severn School When the drone attack happened the United States accused Iran as the attackers. Even though the Yemen Houthi rebels claimed it was them who lead the attack. Iran often backs Yemen’s Houthi rebels which made it easy to claim them responsible. The United States have created many allies in the Middle East due to their high supply of oil. The United States imports millions of barrels of oil from Saudi Arabia.
