JEDDAH: Two terrorists were killed and four suspects arrested in a security clampdown on a hideout in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, the Ministry of Interior announced on Wednesday.
Security forces on Tuesday raided a farm in northern Awamiyah that had been used by terrorists in preparing and planning their acts, said Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry.
Upon raiding the hideout, security forces came under fire. The security forces’ response resulted in the killing of two of those who opened fire, identified as Mohammed Tahir Mohammed Al-Nimr and Moqdad Mohammed Hassan Al-Nimr, the ministry said.
The four arrested were identified as: Abdulrahman Fadel Abdullah Al-Abdula’al, Mohammed Jafar Abdullah Al-Abdula’al, Jafar Mohammed Al-Faraj and Wasfi Ali Makki Al-Qurus, the ministry said.
Those killed and arrested are Saudis with previous criminal history and alleged involvement in terrorist acts. No injuries were reported among citizens or security men, the ministry said.
A number of items were discovered in the farm including potassium, three magazines for machine guns, 71 rounds of live ammunition, and a black mask, the ministry said.
