Saudi security forces shot and killed two fugitive wanted terrorists on Wednesday during a raid on their hideout in the eastern city of Dammam.
The shootout took place as police prepared to storm a house in the upmarket residential neighborhood of Al-Anoud, where the two men had been hiding.
Sources in the security services said the terrorists had begun shooting, and were killed when security forces returned fire.
Earlier, security forces had cordoned off the area to protect local residents, and had called on the two men to surrender.
Afterwards, security and criminal investigation agencies began investigations at the scene of the shootout. The Saudi Presidency of State Security said that it would issue a statement with a full account of the incident “after gathering all necessary data.”
