Saudi Soldier Killed in Restive East

A Saudi Army major was killed and two other soldiers injured when their night patrol 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 late Sunday night in the Masoura neighborhood, Anadolu Agency reported. “The wounded are not in critical condition,” he added. Saudi Arabia’s Shia-majority eastern region, especially the provinces of Qatif and Dammam, has recently seen a spate of attacks on 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.
