US issues travel warning for Saudi Arabia, citing terror, ballistic missile threats

The U.S. State Department
The U.S. State Department on Tuesday issued a travel warning for its citizens traveling to Saudi Arabia, saying that threats of terror attacks and ballistic missiles persist in the Kingdom.


"The State Department warns U.S. citizens to carefully consider the risks of travel to Saudi Arabia due to continuing threats from terrorist groups and the threat of ballistic missile attacks on civilian targets by rebel forces in Yemen," the department said.

The warning superseded the previous version issued by the department on March 29, 2017.

"Terrorist threats persist throughout Saudi Arabia, including in major cities such as Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dhahran, and attacks can occur without warning anywhere in the country. Terrorist groups, including ISIS and its affiliates have targeted both Saudi and Western government interests, mosques and other religious sites (both Sunni and Shia), and places frequented by U.S. citizens and other Westerners," the department said, using an alternative acronym for the Daesh terrorist group.
