WASHINGTON, Feb 1 : Islamic State militants have released a video saying that the group intends to invade Saudi Arabia while the kingdom's throne is changing hands.
According to Fox News, Saudi militants who have joined the IS group in Iraq and Syria issued the statement. IS militants have also called upon the sympathizers in the country to attack from within.
Experts said that the terror threat shows the organization's desire to annex the wealthiest Middle East nation.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State group has acknowledged for the first time that its fighters have been defeated in the Syrian town of Kobane and vowed to attack the town again.
In a video released by the pro-IS Aamaq News Agency late Friday, two fighters said the airstrikes by the US-led coalition were the main reason why IS fighters were forced to withdraw from Kobane.
On Monday, activists and Kurdish officials said the town was almost cleared of IS fighters, who once held nearly half of the town. The failure to capture Kobane was a major blow to the extremists. Their hopes for an easy victory dissolved into a costly siege under withering airstrikes by coalition forces and an assault by Kurdish militiamen. ?Agencies
