Authorities in Saudi Arabia are said to be currently at alert after terror group, Islamic State popularly known as ISIS threatened to attack the kingdom.
The threat by ISIS was reported by Site Intelligence monitoring group and it is coming just days after the militant group claimed responsibility for an attack on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini’s mausoleum in Tehran which claimed 17 lives.
Five masked fighters were shown threatening Shi’ites in Iran as well as the Saudi Arabian government, saying their turn “will come”, in a video moments before the attack in Tehran.
Saudi Arabia security forces have been hit by terrorist attacks in the past as well as deadly bombings and shootings targeting Shi’ites in the Asian country in recent times.
