The Foreign Ministry denounced a terrorist attack by the so-called Islamic State militant group on a religious center in Saudi Arabia, urging the international community to take action to put an end to foreign support for terrorists.

“The persistence of extremist and inhumane measures by terrorists and the killing of defenseless people have given rise to a catastrophic situation,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham said on Saturday, Press TV reported.

On Friday, at least five people were killed after an IS militant opened fire on a group of Shia Muslims attending a religious mourning ceremony in eastern Saudi Arabia.

According to Saudi media, nine people also sustained injuries in the armed attack on the religious center in the city of Saihat near the Qatif region of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province.
