Saudi Arabia has foiled an operation masterminded by a “terrorist cell” which received its orders from militants in Syria Tuesday, Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Mansur al-Turki said Friday.

The “terrorist operation” involved seven car bombings.

on April 8, Saudi police arrested suspect Yazid Mohammed Abu Nayan who admitted to killing two policemen at a checkpoint,” in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, Turki said.

Information was gleaned from Abu Nayan, including text messages from three cell phones which indicate communication was made between him and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group in Syria. Videos of the attempted operation were also seen stored in the cell phones.

The spokesman said Abu Nayan “was hiding in a farm in Hirmaila [north of Riyadh]” when he was found.

However, Saudi authorities are still on the lookout for his alleged partner Nawaf Sharif al-Anzi whom he is said to have met with him about “two days ago, before the crime.”

Turki said Anzi now has one million riyal bounty placed on him.

Saudi authorities seized Belgian rifles and cash estimated to be around 4,000 riyals buried with more arms underground and explosive white powder.

God save Saudi Arabia from these lunatics. Imagine if that happens in such populated area like Riyadh. The outcome will be devastating.

They have sympathizers all over Arab world. That's not problem however, neither is intelligence. Problem is how ordinary civilian gets materials/explosives for car bombs. In arab world there isn't regulation on chemical purchases and other substances. This is why it's easy for them to make bombs. Another question is why they want to target saudi Arabia at this time. I dont understand. From now on they wont use phone calls since it got them caught. So Saudi needs to watch out for emails.

It is not allowed in Saudi Arabia to buy/sell hazardous chemical substances. They could be smuggled from somewhere else. Terrorists make primitive hand made explosives just like the one Boston attacker used.

Apparently ISIS is counting on recruiting Saudi Arabians themselves to fight for them.
Islamic State (Isis) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is believed to have released an audio recording calling for attacks against the rulers of Saudi Arabia.

"O sons of al-Haramayn...the serpent's head and the stronghold of the disease are there...draw your swords and divorce life, because there should be no security for the Saloul," Baghdadi said.
It's these kinds of enemies who are more dangerous than those that you expect to attack.

If that's so then ISIS won't get a foothold in Saudi Arabia. Keep the terrorists out and it will keep ISIS away. But what if some jihadis slip in as pilgrims?

The Saudi authority check every pilgrim background before granting visas. Iraq, Syria pilgrims have to come through Turkey where they go under a second security check before the final one when landed in Saudi Arabia. Its a complex process. Even when pilgrims get to Saudi Arabia their movement is restricted.

One can't be too careful, right?

So apparently IS must fight their way across the border in order to get into Saudi Arabia, a Herculean task which [obviously] they can't accomplish. As the war of attrition rages on, ISIS gets weaker and weaker . . . and in time they'll be another broken terrorist network trying to find a safe haven where they can hide.

Saudia Arabia has done well in, stopping the ISIS and will continue in doing so as this terroist group has done nothing good but fight against humanity and not afraid of death from what I have seen. It is interesting how some young ones want to join them, thinking they are misunderstood and not as bad as they are portrayed it is strange some would think they are fighting for justice. Well, the ISIS have a hard battle and will soon make the same mistake like Hitler did who was having war everywhere and, be stuck and with nowhere to get out and only solution to fight or die.
