DAMMAM — Security forces on Wednesday “eliminated” a wanted terrorist in the eastern town of Awamiya, sources said.

Maitham Ali Al-Qadihi, 28, is the brother of three wanted men of the Qadihi family. Their names were linked to the terrorist attacks in Qatif. Their cases focused on drug trafficking, kidnapping and terrorist operations throughout the past two decades.

Jassim Ali Al-Qadihi and Ghazi Ali Al-Qadihi have previously been detained. However, Bassem Ali Al-Qadahi, and now Maitham have died in security operations.

Maitham was killed after he was surrounded by security forces in the Al-Musawwara neighborhood. For four years, Maitham has been used as a launchpad to carry out terrorist attacks on security forces and civilians in eastern Saudi Arabia.

Maitham’s name was also among a list of nine wanted men released by the Interior Ministry.

Maitham appeared three months ago in a video threatening the attacks against the town’s residents. His name has been linked with known terrorist Muhammad Al-Ammar.

Maitham’s name was also among a list of nine wanted men released by the Interior Ministry. The men are wanted on terrorism charges.

Five of the men — Muhammad Hussein Ali Al-Ammar, Ali Bilal Saud Al-Hamad, Mufid Hamza Bin Ali Al-Alwan, Majid Bin Ali Abdul Rahim Al-Faraj and Ayman Ibrahim Hassan Al-Mukhtar — remain on the loose. — Al Arabiya English
