The Islamic State has called on its members to start targeting Saudi Arabia oil infrastructure as punishment for the Kingdom warming up to Israel.

“Targets are plenty…Start by hitting and destroying oil pipelines, factories, and facilities which are the source (of income) of the tyrant government,” a spokesman for the terrorist group said in a recorded message cited by Reuters.

Saudi Arabia opened its air space for flights between Israel and several neighbors in a historic move for the Middle East. According to the statement of Islamic State, that was enough to turn the Kingdom into a target of the group’s attention.

Saudi Arabia has been the target of Islamic State attacks in the past as well, although never on a scale comparable to what the terrorist group did in Syria and Iraq. Now, it is taking part in the Israeli-Palestine saga, calling for a lasting and sustainable peace between the two.

The UAE and Bahrain, both allies of Riyadh, recently established formal diplomatic ties with the state of Israel in a pair of deals brokered by the US administration. The moves, praised by Washington and Jerusalem alike, drew criticism from the Palestinians, for whom a deal between fellow Arab states and the ultimate enemy must have been a hard blow. (RT)
