Saudi man stabbed to death, others injured in Jeddah neighborhood fight

  • Police have arrested all participants in the violence

JEDDAH: A Saudi man ended up dead and others were injured as residents of an eastern Jeddah neighborhood clashed following a disagreement over parking lots on Saturday night, police said early Sunday.
A preliminary Makkah police report, carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), said weapons were used in the "mass quarrel" and one man was taken to a hospital for stab wounds. It was not clear if it was the same man who was declared dead.
"All the other participants in the quarrel were arrested," the report said.
Police have subsequently beefed up security patrols in the neighborhood.
The report said several suspects were referred for prosecution.

Al-Sudais condemns Riyadh attack

  • The secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars noted the efforts of security services in Zulfi to preserve the safety of the country and protect its people

RIYADH: Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, president of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, has condemned the terrorist attack carried out in Zulfi on Sunday.
“Such terrorist acts are a clear contravention of Shariah laws and a violation of the Sunnah of the Prophet, and are nothing but a trick by the enemies of Islam to create strife and turbulence, targeting the security, stability and capabilities of the Kingdom,” he said.
Al-Sudais praised the courage of security services who were able to thwart the attack, and he urged Saudis to support their efforts to prevent future offenses by reporting suspicious activity.
He added that criminal acts such as the attempt in Zulfi endangered the security and stability of the Kingdom, and concluded his statement by asking God to protect the country and heal those wounded in the attack. The secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars noted the efforts of security services in Zulfi to preserve the safety of the country and protect its people.
In a statement, it thanked those involved, and said that their success in thwarting the terrorists, who targeted the investigation center in Zulfi, was a clear endorsement of the rigorous procedures and efforts put in place by the state and others to maintain peace in the Kingdom.
