Jordan and Saudi Arabia are next on ISIL’s list
It wrote, “The leader of Lebanese group Hezbollah described the radical Islamist movement that has seized territory in Iraq and Syria as a growing “monster” that could threaten Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other Gulf states. “Wherever there are followers of the ideology there is ground for ISIL, and this exists in Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, in Kuwait, and the Gulf states,” Nasrallah said in an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al Akhbar published on Friday.”

Gulf news went on quoting Nasrallah, “It appears that the capabilities, numbers and capacities available to ISIL are vast and large. This is what is worrying everyone, and everyone should be worried.” 

And indeed, Saudi Arabia has shown growing signs of alarm about the spread of ISIL. Last month, it deployed 30,000 soldiers at its border with Iraq.

 “This danger does not recognise Shiites, Sunnis, Muslims, Christians or Druze or Yazidis or Arabs or Kurds. This monster is growing and getting bigger,” said Nasrallah.
