The announcement continued: "a duty to protect the Islamic nation from the evils of all terrorist groups and organisations whatever their sect and name which wreak death and corruption on earth and aim to terrorise the innocent."
However Iran, a mainly Shia Islam country, is absent from the list.
The United States has been keen to see Gulf Arab states doing more to aid the military campaign against Islamic State.
The announcement of the coalition comes after Saudi Arabia succeeded in bringing Syria's disparate opposition groups to the negotiating table.
Syrian President Bashar al Assad remains opposed to negotiating with groups he sees as terrorists but there are suggestion that Russia may 'assist' him to make concessions.
On Tuesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry travels to Moscow to meet with his opposite number Sergei Lavrov and Mr Putin to try to broker an agreement that while Mr Assad should go, 'much of his regime could well be preserved.'
