Saudi Arabia denounces the crime carried out by Israeli settlers resulting in the death of Dawabsheh and severely injuring his family. Minister of Foreign Affairs Al-Jubeir offers the Kingdom’s condolences to the family of the infant and the government and people of Palestine, blames the Israel for the death, and calls on the international community to protect the Palestinians from the aggressive practices of Israeli settlers.
Saudi Arabia says it has arrested a total of 93 people with ties to the ISIS in recent months, foiling their plans to carry out multiple terrorist attacks which included a strike on the U.S. embassy. An Interior Ministry spokesman says the arrests include a cell of 65 people arrested in March who were involved in a plan that included targeting residential compounds, prisons and security forces. He says authorities also disrupted a plot for a suicide car bomber to attack the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh after receiving information about the plan in mid-March. The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh has no immediate comment on the disclosure.
King Abdullah says terrorists could reach America within months if left unchecked:
If neglected, I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America. Terror knows no borders and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East.
He adds that ISIS’s beliefs are against Islam and must be opposed:
I do ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: Fight terrorism with force, reason and speed. These terrorists do not know the name of humanity, and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street.
