Saudi Arabia lauded on Monday the United States’ major efforts in combating terrorism, hailing its elimination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.


An official source at the Saudi Foreign Ministry said the Kingdom closely followed US President Donald Trump’s announcement of the success of the US raid against Baghdadi.


It added that Riyadh praised US counter-terrorism efforts against the dangerous ISIS terror group, which has tarnished the real image of Islam and Muslims throughout the world.


The group has committed crimes and atrocities against the most basic values of humanity in several countries, including Saudi Arabia, remarked the source.


The Kingdom and its allies, starting with the US, will continue their intense efforts to fight terrorism and confront its dangerous criminal ideology, it vowed.
