Saudi Arabia Attacks: Tracking ISIS to Kingdom

Saudi Arabia Attacks: Tracking ISIS to Kingdom

Suicide Bombers Hit 3 Saudi Cities, Killing at least 4 Security Forces

Alwaght- A chain of terrorist attacks targeted the two Saudi Arabian cities of Medina and Qatif at the end of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, triggering two questions: is ISIS terrorist group turning its head to its springhead and actually motherland? Or is it a plan of the Saudi security and intelligence services which by designing and implementing a couple of limited attacks in the kingdom want to steer clear of the pressures that come from an increasing world's awareness which recognizes Saudi Arabia as the cradle of terrorism?

The chain of ISIS terror operations in the Saudi Arabian territories in the past single year could be considered as the result of the moves of the terrorist group and its offshoots in Saudi Arabia. Since the earliest days of ISIS’ territory captures in Syria and Iraq— two hot spots for movement of the terrorist group— it vowed in its statements that one of its most significant priorities was to “take back the two holy mosques” from Al Saud, the ruling family in the country.

As the terrorists of ISIS expanded their areas of operation, a theory was developed that there would be a day that Saudi Arabia itself would come under assaults of ISIS and its affiliates.

The most important factor that supported the theory was the potentials inside the kingdom that strengthened the extremists and ripened the opportunities for the radical Salafist groups.

ISIS holds a good popularity among the Saudi younger generation. The kingdom is the ideological and doctrinal cradle of the Salafism in its both moderate and fundamentalist branches and approaches in West Asian.

Many of the ISIS’ fighters are Saudi nationals, and the financial and logistic backing of Salafist groups in Syria and Iraq— in addition to other factors— show that the potentials and opportunities of such terror attacks in Saudi Arabia are existing in the kingdom.

Whenever the terrorist acts see a heat-up across the world, the attention of the global public opinion, the research centers associated with the international development and peace, and the media is called to the crisis points, and thus Saudi Arabia ranks first among the suspects of such violent acts. In addition to a huge amount of criticism directed against Riyadh, this issue has always put political and diplomatic strains on the kingdom, cutting down the chances of the Saudis for riding waves of chaos in the region and exploiting the destructive potentials of terrorism.

Therefore, it shouldn't be kept out of mind that perhaps the intelligence and security services of Al Saud have designed a top secret plan and implemented it in a limited size in a bid to reduce the pressures and distract the global attention on the kingdom, and also to a degree clear it of charges of backing up terrorist groups, and furthermore pretend that the Saudis themselves are not safe against the attacks of ISIS and other terror organizations. This theory finds credibility further especially when the terrorist assaults are taking place in Saudi Arabia's Medina and Qatif immediately after an array of similar terrorist attacks ripped through Istanbul, Dhaka and Baghdad, to create a picture of chain terrorist attacks in the public opinion’s mind.

At the same time, it shouldn't be forgotten that the chain terrorist attacks in a global scale are indicative of a type of operational coordination and implementation by a single source which distributes them to the world's different places. This supports the notion that the opportunities inside Saudi Arabia are provided for such terrorist attacks to occur in the kingdom, and shows further the footprints of ISIS terror organization in its fountainhead Saudi Arabia.
