Iraqi security forces have arrested 250 Saudi-backed Wahhabi terrorists in Iraq, reports say.
The terrorists, who had been deployed to the Middle Euphrates region, were reportedly ordered to carry out armed operations in the Iraqi cities of Karbala, Najaf, and al-Diwaniyah.
According to the commander of the Iraqi forces, Saudi spy chief Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud had allocated 250 million US dollars for the terrorist operations in Iraq.
The commander also said that Bandar bin Sultan had hired fugitive Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi to conduct terrorist attacks.
The terrorists confessed they had assassinated hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis.
Violence has increased in Iraq since December 2011, when an arrest warrant was issued for al-Hashemi, who has been charged with running a death squad targeting Iraqi officials and Shia Muslims.
