The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group is urging its supporters to attack people in the West, oil pipelines and economic infrastructure in Saudi Arabia. Reuters reported on Sunday.
Saudi Arabia, home to the holiest sites of Islam and the world’s largest oil exporter, has long emphasized the need to step up efforts to reach a lasting and sustainable peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis.
In response to Riyadh’s statement, IS spokesman Abu Hamza al-Muhajir called for attacks in Saudi Arabia via a video speech posted on an IS account on the Telegram social network.
“There are many goals… Start by attacking and destroying the pipelines, factories and facilities that are the source (of revenue) of the tyrannical government,” an IS spokesman said.
He said the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had supported normalization with Israel by opening airspace for Israeli flights to neighboring Gulf states.
Israel signed agreements to normalize mutual diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain on September 15 at the White House in Washington. These Arab countries were joined by Bahrain, whose leaders signed a joint communiqué with Israeli representatives on Sunday to establish full-fledged diplomatic relations.
