Islamic State has threatened attacks in Saudi Arabia. In a video that appeared to have been recorded before the recent attack in Tehran, five masked fighters were shown threatening Shias in Iran as well as the Saudi Arabian government saying: “Know that after Iran, your turn will come. By Allah, we will strike you in your own homes … We are the agents of nobody. We obey Allah and His Messenger, and we are fighting for the sake of this religion, not for the sake of Iran or the Arabian Peninsula.”
