Saudi Arabia rekindles the conflict with Shiites

03 January 2016

EFD Senior Fellow Valentina Colombo comments on the mass execution of 47 people in Saudi Arabia that took place on 2nd January 2016. According to Valentina Colombo, this day could go down in history as “the day in which Saudi Arabia has officially and wittingly rekindled the threat of the international Sunni-Shia conflict”. She concludes by stating that Europe would be involved directly in such a conflict “not only because of Saudi investments within Europe, but also because the exacerbation of the Middle East conflict [...] would complicate the fight against terrorism, which is of particular concern to us.”
