Three hundred thirty four Saudi nationals who were released from prison, or a Jeddah-based counseling center, have now returned to their respective Islamic terror organizations.
According to the Makkah newspaper, the Saudi jihadists were part of a 1,696-strong group of released inmates who were sent to the Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling Center in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The source of the report told Makkah that twenty percent of the 120 attendees who were released from Guantanamo Bay have returned to terrorism.
