“Those attacks on Samba, Alahli, Riyad bank were just small warnings to the Saudi regime and it’s king and if they don’t pay attention to the demands made by people, there will be attacks with more strength than before. These attacks are warnings to make Saudi regime change its behavior with the people and stops its wrong policies,” the hacker added.
