Russia said that the recent bombing at a mosque in the Saudi city of Abha shows that terrorism is spreading in the Middle East region.

In a  statement, Russian foreign minister said: “the Abha bombing is yet another evidence [that] the wave of terrorism, triggered by extremist organizations, is sweeping the region of the Middle East.”

In this context, the Russian ministry called for “concerted action” by regional countries and the entire international community to curb terrorism and expressed Moscow’s willingness to render “necessary assistance” to Riyadh in the fight against terror.

On Thursday, a suicide blast killed 17 Saudi policemen at a mosque in Abha, the capital of the southwestern Asir province.

The Takfiri ISIL terrorist group claimed responsibility for the deadly attack which took place during noon prayers at a mosque inside a special forces headquarters in Abha.

In mid-July, a car bomb went off at a security checkpoint near a prison in the capital, Riyadh, killing the driver and injuring two policemen. The attack was also claimed by ISIL.

Back in May, at least 21 people were killed and dozens sustained injuries during a bomb attack, claimed by ISIL Takfiris, at a mosque in al-Qadeeh village in the Persian Gulf kingdom’s Eastern Province.
