U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) issued the following statement after reports of attacks against key Saudi Arabian oil facilities:

The ayatollahs' desperate efforts to cripple global energy markets will only renew our commitment to maximum pressure. The Iranian regime and its proxies ought to face consequences for these attacks."
