Terror plots with targets in KSA and abroad foiled

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif

Security agencies have thwarted several attempts to launch terror attacks in the Kingdom. Targets at home and abroad were in the crosshairs, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif has revealed.

In a speech delivered on behalf of Prince Mohammed, Lt. Gen. Abdullah Al-Qarni, deputy director general of general investigations, said the government was committed to fighting terrorists.

He was speaking at the second meeting of the working group set up to cut off funding to the so-called Islamic State terrorist organization. “The Kingdom succeeded in thwarting and frustrating imminent terrorist plots that were to be executed at home and abroad.”

The prince said victims of terror attacks are mostly innocent citizens, expatriates and security officers. He said the Kingdom had called on the international community in 2005 to establish an international center to combat terrorism. The government has allocated $100 million to support its activities, he said.

He said the Kingdom has played an active role in all international and regional forums on terror. It has also taken a number of legislative and other steps to combat these operators.

It has signed and ratified several international and regional conventions in line with Security Council resolutions and the recommendations of the special financial action group.

He said the meeting reflected the international community’s concern about the threat posed by these groups to countries across the world. Terrorism has no borders, religion or race, only the culture of death and destruction, he said.

The participants at the meeting included delegates from 23 countries and several international organizations.
