Saudi security forces raid extremists’ hideout in Qatif

Published: Updated:

Al Arabiya has learned that Saudi security forces raided the farm of captured extremist Hussein al-Faraj on Tuesday north of Qatif’s Awamiya neighborhood in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

According to the sources, fierce clashes erupted as security forces approached the farm where people were hiding inside.
Those caught at the farm in Tuesday’s raid have been linked to a string of terror activities that rocked the restive neighborhood in Qatif in recent weeks.

Security forces arrested Hussein Mohammed Ali Al-Faraj on January 17. He was involved in a number of terror activities in recent months, including the shooting of people and the destruction of public facilities.
