Saudi security forces arrest two terrorists after shootout in Qatif

JEDDAH: Security forces in Qatif arrested two men on Thursday night for their suspected involvement in terrorist crimes that targeted security officers, citizens and security departments.
The men, Mohammed Saeed Salman Al-Abdulaal and Mustapha Ali Saleh Al-Subaiti, were arrested by the Eastern Province’s security forces in the town of Tarout in Qatif, and were taken to hospital for the treatment of injuries sustained during a shootout after they resisted arrest, the security spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, said.
Security officers received reports about the presence of the wanted men in a house in Tarout. Officers surrounded the house and demanded that the terrorists surrender but the men responded with gunfire, forcing security forces to shoot back.
