Moroccan Preacher: ISIL Preparing for New Terrorist Attacks in Arab Countries
A Moroccan religious preacher who has rejected a proposal by the ISIL to become the terrorist group’s Mufti warned against the Takfiri militants’ imminent bombing plots to in the Persian Gulf Arab countries.
“The ISIL has not stopped its terrorist operations in the Persian Gulf states, and is rather preparing for a new tragedy,” the Arabic-language al-Rai news website quoted Abolfazl al-Hodoushi as saying on Monday.
He said that the ISIL has offered him to accept the position of the terrorist group’s religious mufti in lieu of receiving lump sum money.
On June 26, the ISIL carried a deadly bombing at Imam Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait City, killing at least 27 worshippers and injuring more than 220 others.
Shiites make up around one-third of Kuwait’s population of 1.3 million.
In May, a similar Terrorist attack was carried out at a Shiite mosque in Qatif region of Saudi Arabia, killing at least 21 people.
The ISIL claimed responsibility for both terrorist attacks.
