Tensions are growing in the country’s oil-rich Eastern province, one of the main centres of the Shi’ite community in majority Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, as neighbouring Yemen, Iraq and Syria contend with violent sectarian conflict.
Some leading clerics of Saudi Arabia’s official Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam view Shi’ites as heretics.
But the kingdom has also joined a U.S.-led coalition against Sunni Islamic State militants, partly out of concern that the ultra-violent group, which is likely to include hundreds of Saudis, could gain a foothold at home.
The U.S. warning comes after gun attacks in recent months have rattled the world’s top oil-exporting nation.
In the last attack targeting Americans, a U.S. citizen was shot and wounded by unknown gunmen as he was travelling by car through al-Ahsa city in Eastern province in January. A gunman killed a U.S. citizen and wounded another in the capital, Riyadh, last October.
In November, seven Shi’ite Muslims were shot dead in al-Ahsa as they marked their holy day of Ashoura. Saudi Arabia has arrested the four main suspects and said it believes the attack was ordered by Islamic State militants from abroad.
The Eastern province has been a focus of anti-government demonstrations in support of Shi’ites, who complain of discrimination. The Saudi authorities deny any discrimination.
