The Saudi Interior Ministry announced on Sunday that police forces killed another fugitive during a raid on hideouts of terrorists in the eastern Province of Al Awamiah.
The ministry said in its statement that the raid targeted old, deserted houses in the area which terrorists were using as shelters.
Sunday’s police raid was in response to the heavy shooting on Saturday which targetted police personnel, during which police forces retaliated, injuring the fugitive Waleed Talal Ali Al Orayed, who died later at the hospital.
Saudi Arabia has recently taken serious measures against violent Shiite citizens in the Eastern Province to end escalating attacks against citizens and police personnel.
Saudi youth are demanding increased rights for the Shiite minority population in the country, considered the center of the world’s Sunni teachings.
Furthermore, on Friday, police forces killed a Saudi fugitive wanted for his involvement in several security crossfire cases whilst evading arrest in the province.
Moreover, police forces are still searching for the shooters of the former municipal councilor who sustained gunshot wounds in his back and leg the previous week.
In addition to the violent Shiite youth in the Eastern province, the country is facing increasing critical attacks from the Islamic State (IS) militant groups’s sleeping cells, responsible for countless bloody detonations throughout the country. Enditem
