RIYADH, June 9 (Reuters) - The group threatened to launch attacks in Saudi Arabia after it claimed responsibility for two attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran, killing at least 17 people, the website of the militant group Saite, a website tracking group and the Da'im organization, said.
Suicide bombers and gunmen attacked the Iranian parliament and Khomeini's shrine in Tehran on Wednesday, and dozens of people were also injured in the attacks.
He claimed responsibility for the attacks and vowed more attacks.
In a video that appeared to be filmed before the Tehran attack, five masked gunmen launched threats against Shiites in Iran as well as against the Saudi government, saying their role would come.
"This is a message from soldiers (Islamic state) and one of the battalions in Iran: this is the first battalion to be formed and will not be the last one. And this is a message from your brothers from the people of jihad to incite the Muslims to destabilize the security of the Shiites, "referring to Shiites who represent the majority in Iran.
"Know that the necks of the Shiites in Iran are not far from the sword of soldiers (the state of Islam). This battalion will be the first jihad in Iran. "
At the end of the video the gunman said: "Know that after Iran comes your turn, God willing, we will hit you in the back of your homes. And know that the soldiers (the Islamic state) are fighting for God and on his way. We are not clients for anyone. We hear and obey Allah and His Messenger. We are fighting for this religion, not for Iran, not for the sake of the Arabian Peninsula. "
In recent years, the militant group has launched attacks on Saudi security forces and launched deadly attacks on Shi'ites in Saudi Arabia.
Iranian authorities said the five Iranian attackers had recruited a sympathetic organization but Iran's influential Revolutionary Guards accused Saudi Arabia of being behind the attacks and threatened retaliation. Saudi Arabia has denied any link. Finished
