According to al-Akhbariya news website, General Mansour al-Turki, the spokesman of the Saudi Interior Ministry, called on the country’s citizens and residents not to send aid to certain funds which collect money for the militant groups in Syria through the social media.

Al-Turki called on the Saudi citizens to send their aid to the government and official organizations instead.

Gen. al-Turki also noted that the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid is responsible for any external charitable contributions from Saudi Arabia or Saudi citizens.

Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry also warned that anyone taking actions outside the framework specified by the government will face prosecution and his/her account will be frozen.
