People in Saudi Arabia took to the streets to express solidarity with the people of Kuwait over a recent terrorist attack targeting Shiite worshippers in a Kuwaiti mosque, Al-Alam News Network reports.


On Sunday, the demonstrators in the Qatif region of Eastern Province slammed the deadly bombing at Imam Sadiq (AS) Mosque in Kuwait City, which was carried out on Friday during weekly prayers.

Waving black flags in mourning, the Saudi ralliers denounced the terrorist act. The participants also raised Kuwait’s national flag, and held banners with writing that said their sorrow and suffering is the same as those of the Kuwaitis and that they both have common enemies.

The messages on the placards also referred to a similar terrorist attack on a Shiite mosque in Qatif, which claimed the lives of at least 21 people in May, stressing that those who lost their lives in Qatif and Kuwait were killed by the same enemy.

On Friday, an assailant detonated his explosives at Imam Sadiq (AS) Mosque in Kuwait City, killing at least 27 worshippers and injuring more than 220 others.

The Takfiri ISIL terrorist group claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack, Press TV reported.

Shiites make up around one-third of Kuwait’s population of 1.3 million.
