DUBAI - Iran's foreign minister said on Thursday US and allies' accusations that attacks on Saudi oil sites were "an act of war" may be aimed at deceiving US President Donald Trump into a war against Tehran.

"'Act of war'or AGITATION for WAR? Remnants of #B_Team (+ambitious allies) try to deceive @realdonaldtrump into war," Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.

Zarif has in the past said that a so-called “B-team” including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman could goad the US president into a conflict with Tehran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described on Wednesday the attacks on Saudi Arabia as "an act of war."
