The terrorist organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility Thursday for the terrorist attack on a non-Muslim cemetery in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The French Foreign Ministry announced that several people were injured Wednesday in a bomb attack commemorating World War One, attended by European diplomats at a non-Muslim cemetery in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
“The annual ceremony commemorating the end of the First World War at a non-Muslim cemetery in Jeddah, which was attended by a number of officials in foreign consulates, including employees of the French consulate, was the target of an explosive device attack this morning, which resulted in the injury of many people,” the ministry said.
“As a result of the attack, one of the employees of the Greek consulate and a Saudi security man were slightly injured,” the media spokesman for the Emirate of Mecca, Sultan Al-Dosari said.
Three weeks ago, the terrorist organization “ISIS” issued a statement calling for terrorist attacks against foreign interests in the Kingdom.
