(October 19, 2020 / JNS) An Islamic State spokesman has called for attacks on Westerners, oil pipelines and infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.
“Targets are plenty. … Start by hitting and destroying oil pipelines, factories and facilities which are the source [of income] of the tyrant government,” said Abu Hamza al-Muhajir in a recorded speech posted on the group’s official Telegram channel, reported Reuters.
Al-Muhajir said that by opening its airspace to Israel, Saudi Arabia had backed last month’s normalization agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Separately, a study published last week in the United Arab Emirates shows growing support for establishing ties with Israel in some Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia.
