RIYADH: The Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) on Thursday held a symposium to discuss guerrilla warfare and its relation to terrorism.
Among those speaking at the event was Brig. Gen. Yahya Assiri from the Saudi delegation to the coalition, and Zaki Al-Ruwahi, Oman’s representative, in the presence of IMCTC secretary-general, Mohammed Al-Moghedi, representatives of members states, and other coalition officials.
Assiri said guerrilla warfare was an irregular form of conflict that had become an international phenomenon with its dimensions and manifestations, and he highlighted its links to terrorist funding, intelligence, and information. Al-Ruwahi pointed out that guerrilla groups were a threat to local, regional, and international security, peace, and stability.
The Saudi-led IMCTC includes 41 member states collaborating to coordinate and intensify international efforts to combat extremism and terrorism and preserve global peace and security.
