In a video massage, Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has called the followers of Al-Qaeda terrorist group to retaliate the execution of some members of Al-Qaeda by Saudi regime.

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman alZawahiri has threatened attacks on Saudi Arabia in a new video calling for revenge over the country’s Jan. 2 mass execution of dozens of Al-Qaeda extremists.

In the video, recorded on Tuesday and released by the SITE Intelligence Group on Thursday, al-Zawahiri encouraged Saudis to rise up against their “rotten regime that corrupted your religion,” saying it “will never defend you.”

The Persian Gulf nation received a similar message from the ISIS group shortly after the execution happened on Jan. 2. The mass execution was the largest in 35 years. ISIS group also threatened attacks after the Saudi defense minister proclaimed Dec. 15 the formation of a coalition of 34 mostly Sunni Muslim countries to fight terrorism; telesurtv reported.
