Al Arabiya sources confirmed that terrorist Salman Ali Salman al-Faraj was killed in Awamiya, eastern province of Saudi Arabia, after confrontations with the police forces.

Al-Faraj is one of the most wanted men in the list of 23 terrorists that was announced in 2012.

He committed many crimes in Qatif, including targeting security men, security patrols and police stations.

Al-Faraj remained undercover for seven years until security forces raided his place in Awamiya.

He opened fire on the security men, who shot him dead.

With al-Faraj's killing, the list of wanted terrorists in Qatif has shrunk to only two people - Fadhil Safwani and Mohammed al-Zayed.
