The Daesh terrorist group on Monday claimed an attack on a police center in Saudi Arabia, in which four people were killed, Anadolu reports.

In a video posted by its Amaq news agency, the notorious group said the attack was “in revenge for jailed Muslims in the kingdom, Syria and Iraq”.

Saudi authorities said Sunday four gunmen had been killed and three policemen injured in a foiled terrorist attack on a police center north of Riyadh.

The authorities said gunmen attempted to break into the center before being confronted by security forces.

In July of last year, Daesh claimed an attack on a security checkpoint in the central al-Qassim region, in which a policeman and a foreign resident were killed.
