Lebanese cleric calls for end to anti-Shia campaign

Ayatollah Sheikh Afif Nablusi referred to the recent bomb attacks against Shia mosque in Saudi Arabia and said the main reason behind these attacks is a lack of action against the media and preachers who incite sedition. 

He condemned the suicide bombings on Shia mosques and said there could be more such terrorist attacks if no action is taken against spreading hatred by Takfiris. 

The senior cleric went on to say that the way Shias are treated I Saudi Arabia is in no way acceptable. 

On Friday, a car bomb attack targeted the Imam Hussein (AS) Mosque in Dammam, the capital city of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. 

The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack, which left at least four people dead. 

The attack came a week after another Takfiri element blew himself up at the Imam Ali (AS) Mosque in Qatif, killing 21 Shia worshippers and injuring 97 others.
