More re­cently, Saudi Arabia has been a tar­get of the mil­i­tant Is­lamic State (IS) group at­tacks that have killed dozens of peo­ple. The ex­trem­ist group views the Western-al­lied Saudi monar­chy and gov­ern­ment as heretics. Saudi Arabia is part of the US-led coali­tion fight­ing IS in Iraq and Syria. In June, the In­te­rior Min­istry re­ported 26 ter­ror at­tacks had taken place in the king­dom in the last two years.
