According to two new reports by the United Nations and Conflict Armament Research, the gyroscopes recovered from the drones that targeted a Saudi Arabian oil facility in September 2019 match those found in Iranian manufactured drones. Additionally, the reports found that the gyroscopes used in Houthi arms match those found in Iranian weaponry. Similar gyroscopes were also found in weapons shipments bound for Yemen that were seized by the U.S. Navy. The findings further tie Iran to the attack on the Saudi oil industry and to the arming of Houthi rebels.
