An Iranian opposition group has strongly condemned the terrorist plan against the Grand Mosque area in Mecca.
“Those who are behind these inhuman and non-Islamic plans and who carry them out are the worst enemies of Islam and Muslims. The spirit of Islam and humanity are innocent of them,” the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said in a statement on their website.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran is the main opposition to the Islamic Republic and is based in France.
“The only party to profit from this shameful scheme that is repulsive to all Muslims in the world is the ruling religious fascist regime in Iran, which wants to drive the entire region into a quagmire of wars and crises,” the opposition group added.
Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry said on Friday that it arrested five members of a cell that was planning an attack on the Grand Mosque area in Mecca. Security forces said the operation was planned by three terrorist groups, two based in Mecca and the third in Jeddah.
