A Specialized Criminal Court in Saudi Arabia has issued preliminary sentences for the execution of four persons who formed a terrorist cell to communicate with Iran, it has been revealed.

The group is said to have received training at Revolutionary Guard camps in Iran on the use of weapons and explosives and fighting in the streets and how to hide from security agencies.

The trainees travel to Iran were facilitated through a tourist office that recruited them. Terror cells were formed after they were trained to use weapons, explosives and conduct military warfare in order to disrupt the unity and stability of the Kingdom.

They were also trained to manufacture explosives and carry out bombings in Saudi Arabia. The group also planned to assassinate some figures in the country.

The court has decided to close down the tourism office and revoked its license.
