Saudi security officer dead in 4th Qatif terror attack in 10 days

TAIF: A security officer from the border guards died Thursday evening and his colleague was injured after they were shot by unknown assailants while performing their security duties.
The incident took place a week after two security officers from the special emergency forces in Al-Musawara district in Qatif province died and six others were injured in consecutive terrorist attacks.
The security spokesman of the Interior Ministry, Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, said at 10 p.m. on Thursday, a border guard patrol was attacked while carrying out its duties near Al-Ramis coast in Qatif neighborhood, which led to the death of Sgt. Mohammed Hussein Hazazi, and the injury of Sgt. Khalid Moabbar Hakami, who was taken to a hospital. Security authorities are continuing their investigations.
Al-Musawara is a district in Awamiyah which the Saudi government has slated for development. It contains many abandoned houses which terrorists use for their hideouts. As part of the project, many dilapidated and abandoned houses had to be demolished. The narrow alleyways that led into the area posed immense risks to residents, and abandoned and destroyed houses became obstacles to providing better civic services for the area’s residents.
Last month, a security officer was martyred and another injured when workers of a contracting company came under fire while working on a housing project in the area.
Recently, the Interior Ministry announced the execution of four Saudi nationals convicted of terrorism in Qatif.
