Saudi Arabia on alert over possible oil or mall attack
“Saudi Arabia has put security forces on alert for a possible militant attack on a shopping mall or energy installation, Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour Turki said on Monday.
‘There was information about a possible act targeting a mall or Aramco installations. We passed this information to the security forces to be on alert,’ he told Reuters.
Turki said he had no further information about the threat. Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter and key strategic ally of the United States, has been a target of jihadist militant groups for years, including al Qaeda and Islamic State.”
