Officer of Saudi Army was killed in terror attack

A Saudi army major has been killed and two other soldiers injured when their night patrol car came under a bomb attack in the country’s eastern Qatif province, the Interior Ministry said early Monday.

In a statement, the ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki described the incident as a “terror attack”, which occurred in the Masoura neighborhood, Anadolu News Agency reported.

The officer who lost his life has been identified as Maj. Tariq Ben Abdullatif al-Alaki.

An investigation into the terror attack had been launched as Kingdom’s Shia-majority eastern region Qatif has seen a number of terrorist attacks targeting local security personnel.

In late March, the Interior Ministry announced that two “terrorist elements” had been killed and four others arrested in Qatif’s Al-Awamiya town.
