Terrorist sentenced to death for trying to kill security forces in Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH: A terrorist who made petrol bombs and tried to kill security forces in Qatif was sentenced to death on Thursday at the Specialized Criminal Court.
Two other men were convicted of disrupting security in the area and jailed for 21 years and 23 years.
The first man was found guilty of issuing an order to kill security men. He helped two terrorists, Bassem Al-Kadihi and Maitham Al-Kadihi, both now dead, by giving them a ride in his brother’s car and participating with them in shooting at the Tarout police station and a security patrol in Qatif. He made a large number of petrol bombs and trained others in using them.
He was also convicted of possessing weapons and ammunition, including six boxes of ammunition for machineguns that he had delivered to Maitham Al-Kadihi, knowing that Al-Kadihi would use them to shoot security patrols.
The other two men were found guilty of disrupting stability, throwing a petrol bomb at the Tarout police station, associating with hooligans and attempting to mislead investigations.
They were both banned from travelling outside Saudi Arabia after their release from prison.
