(National Council of Resistance of Iran) The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a French-based Iranian political opposition group, has reported details of the missile and drone attack by Iran against the oil facilities of Saudi Arabia. Intelligence reports indicate that the operation involved the highest levels of the IRGC who directed it at every step. Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of the regime, directly ordered the attack. The tactical command headquarters for the operation deployed from Tehran to Khuzestan province (southwest Iran) one week prior to the attack. The Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) approved a plan for the attack on July 31, in a meeting presided over by President Hassan Rouhani. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is also a member of the SNSC and attends its sessions. Brig.-Gen. Mohammad Fallah, operational deputy commander of the IRGC air force, took the lead in implementing the operation. Omidiyeh base (situated between Omidiyeh and Ahvaz in Khuzestan province) was used as the tactical base for this operation.
