Arab News - - SAUDI ARABIA - ARAB NEWS

RIYADH: The Gen­eral Sec­re­tar­iat of the Coun­cil of Se­nior Schol­ars noted two se­cu­rity achieve­ments: Thwart­ing a ter­ror­ist plan to at­tack two de­part­ments af­fil­i­ated with the Min­istry of De­fense in Riyadh, and dis­cov­er­ing and dis­band­ing cells that had sedi­tious in­ten­tions.

The sec­re­tar­iat yes­ter­day an­nounced in a state­ment: “The peo­ple of the King­dom are to­tally aware of the bad in­ten­tions of ter­ror­ist groups and cells that have ex­ter­nal re­la­tions in­tend­ing to cause in­sta­bil­ity and sedi­tion. It is very im­por­tant for us to know that the thing that ir­ri­tates our en­e­mies the most is see­ing the achieve­ments and sol­i­dar­ity in the King­dom, which has re­sulted in a sta­ble and se­cure coun­try. The King­dom has a lead­ing role at Arab, Mus­lim and in­ter­na­tional lev­els, and the ha­tred and mal­ice of our en­e­mies pushes them into try­ing to sab­o­tage this.”

The report also said that the sec­re­tar­iat is­sued a num­ber of re­ports in which it con­firmed its sup­port for the gov­ern­ment’s pro­ce­dures re­gard­ing ter­ror­ists and those who have ex­ter­nal al­le­giances to such groups as Daesh, Al-Qaeda, the Houthis, and Hezbol­lah, in or­der to pre­vent and pro­tect the coun­try and its peo­ple from their evil, and pre­serve sol­i­dar­ity and unity.

The sec­re­tar­iat also stressed the ne­ces­sity of co­op­er­a­tion on this is­sue, and called for ad­her­ence to re­li­gion in or­der to es­cape cor­rupt move­ments, sedi­tion and di­vi­sion.
