A Saudi security official announced on Sunday that his country was hit by 30 terrorist attacks in 2015, Al-Resalah newspaper reported.

Colonel Bassam Atiyeh from the interrogation department of the Saudi interior ministry said: “Members and leaders of the organisation in Syria pretend there are no Daesh members in Saudi Arabia… It is impossible to stop exporting terror as long as there are problems in Syria.”

However, members in Saudi “are only tools to carry out the terrorist plans which target the country.”

Atiyeh said that 30 attacks in one year means an attack every 12 days. “This means that the kingdom is the most affected country by terrorists across the world.”
