School walls in Saudi Arabia marked with ISIL slogans: Al-Hayat

Fact checked

From the Tehran Times:  “People in Saudi Arabia are becoming increasingly interested in the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a sign of which is writing the slogans of the terrorist group on schools’ walls by Saudi children, a Saudi Arabian newspaper said in report on its website on Sunday.
The daily Al-Hayat reported that despite numerous measures adopted by Saudi officials to deter the threat of ISIL to the kingdom, Saudi children and youth are becoming increasingly interested in the group’s symbols and slogans.

The use of ISIL mottos in the internet is on the rise as many Saudi children and youth continue to republish them on their pages in social media, the daily reported.

The most frequent ISIL phrase used in the media is a slogan in which the group is described as “resilient, undefeatable and victorious.” The phrase has been reportedly written on the walls in a number of schools in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

The daily also says that according to a recent poll conducted in the oil-rich kingdom more than 92 percent of the people see the ISIL activities as religiously legal.”
