A Saudi citizen was killed and another injured during an operation to secure families wishing to leave Awamiya on Thursday, after an armed attack by terrorists on a bus.
Nabih Ibrahim, an adviser engineer and former councilor tweeted that Mohammed Arhiman was killed in Awamiya during the transfer of displaced families, reported Al Arabiya.
He added that Abdel-Sattar Al-Sheikh was wounded and his condition was stable. Both of them were members of Tawasul, the crisis management committee in Awamiya, that works with the concerned authorities.
The authorities continued to secure the movement of the residents who wish to leave the town of Awamiya through a number of ways.
The authorities secured the exit of large numbers of families who preferred to leave the town and proceeded to Qatif governorate, where they were provided all the facilities, including housing.
Qatif authorities earlier urged all displaced families from the town of Awamiya to reach out in order to secure their new accommodations.
