Saudi security forces surrounded a house in Jeddah and exchanged fire with the men, who blew themselves up, Sabq.org, a website affiliated with the monarchy’s interior ministry, was cited by Reuters.
UAE-based Sky News Arabia also reported the incident and ran a video of an explosion in Jeddah’s eastern Al-Harazat District. The Saudi ministry had no immediate comment.
The self-styled Islamic State terrorist group has carried out a series of bombings and shootings in Saudi Arabia since mid-2014, which have killed scores of people, mostly members of the Shia minority and security services.
Last year, a suicide bomber was killed and two people were wounded in a blast near the US Consulate in Jeddah, the first bombing in years to target foreigners in the kingdom.
