ISIS Claimed Responsibility For Attack On Armistice Day Ceremony At Saudi Cemetery

ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack on an Armistice Day ceremony that was being held at cemetery in the Saudi city of Jeddah on November 11.

An improvised explosive device (IED), which had been planted by the terrorist group’s loyalists, struck the ceremony, that was attended by representatives of France, Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States.

As a result of the attack, a Greek consulate employee, a Saudi security officer and a third person were lightly wounded.

“The annual ceremony commemorating the end of World War I at the non-Muslim cemetery in Jeddah, attended by several consulates, including that of France, was the target of an IED attack this morning, which injured several people,” the Foreign Ministry of France said in a statement. “France strongly condemns this cowardly, unjustifiable attack.”

ISIS’ news agency Amaq said in a statement released on November 12 that the attack targeted the French Consul who was attending the ceremony. Amaq said that attack was a response for the republication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in France.

Saudi security authorities launched an investigation into the attack, that was  a “failure” according to the Mecca region principality.

The republication of caricatures of Prophet Mohammad resulted in a series of knife attacks by radicals in France. Mass protests and a campaign to boycott French-made goods were organized in several Muslim countries.

This wave of violence is provoking a response against Muslim countries. On November 12, a gunman opened fire outside the Saudi Embassy in The Hague, Amsterdam. No one was injured in the attack. The current tension may lead to more incidents.

It’s possible, but if there is no strong response, it’s less likely. Why would you think it’s a false flag?

One of the rare reports of increasingly frequent attacks inside Saudi Arabia that make it to the outside world and/or MSM. Saudi Arabia is falling apart economically and socially. The head-choppers are slowly returning home to the Wahhabi shithole that spawned them. The streets of Riyadh will run red this winter with the blood of the inbred, extra-chromosome monarchy and the parasitic elite class they created. The Takfir are coming for your apostate asses too, UAE. I don’t think your F-35s or your American cronies are going to save you either. Go now into the dumpster of history. I’ll lock the lid down to keep you safe, then wheel it out to somewhere that gets plenty of sunlight. I think a week or two of solar baking should drive the evil out of your monkey-like skulls. Stay hydrated!

The end of Saudi Barbaria has, unfortunately, not yet happened. The Yemen war would have precipitated it but obviously there are certain countries that are still propping up the headchopper paradise.


I’m surprised they actually claimed this feeble, pathetic attempt at a ‘terrorist attack’. It was hardly mentioned in the news!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
