Trump orders more Iran sanctions as Saudi displays attack evidenceJEDDAH/DUBAI (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump ordered a major increase in sanctions on Iran on Wednesday as Saudi Arabia displayed remnants of drones and missiles it said were used in a crippling attack on its oil sites “unquestionably sponsored” by Tehran. Trump gave no explanation in a Twitter post announcing the order, but it followed repeated U.S. assertions that the Islamic Republic was behind Saturday’s attack and came hours after Saudi Arabia said the strike was a “test of global will”. “I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase sanctions on the country of Iran!” he wrote.
