JEDDAH: A policeman was killed in a bomb attack in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province on Thursday, authorities said.
A police patrol was targeted while in the Al-Musawara neighborhood of Qatif province resulting in the death of Corporal Abdullah Treiki Al-Turki and wounding six others, the Interior Ministry said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
The attack, which authorities described as being carried out by terrorists, was the second this week in the same area. On Tuesday morning Vice Sgt. Adel Faleh Al-Otaibi was killed and three others were wounded after an explosive projectile hit their vehicle.
In early June, two terrorists died in an apparent premature explosion that hit their car in Qatif.
Al-Musawara is a district which the Saudi government has slated for development. It contains many abandoned houses which terrorists use for their hideouts. Last month, a security officer was killed and another injured when workers of a contracting company came under fire while working on a housing project.
