Riyadh — More pictures and videos are emerging of the security operation in which two wanted Saudi terrorists were killed in Riyadh on Saturday.

A video footage shows a brave security officer tackling one of the terrorists face to face.

Photos from inside the house where the terrorists were hiding show barely-kept rooms.

The security officer can be seen aiming his gun at one of the terrorists as the other runs toward a policeman’s car.

Both the terrorists were killed during a raid in Riyadh’s Yasmeen neighborhood on Saturday.

The two have been identified as Tayea Salem Yaslam Al-Sayari and Talal Samran Al-Saadi.

Al-Sayari was wanted for plotting the attack on the Prophet’s Mosque last year. He was said to have designed the explosive belts and other devices that were used in the botched attacks on the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah and the parking lots of Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah earlier on July 4, 2016, as well as the attack on a mosque used by Saudi special forces in the southern Saudi city of Abha on Aug. 9, 2015.

An eyewitness told Al Arabiya that the two terrorists first attempted to evade capture by jumping from their house onto his property, which was confirmed by a photo AlArabiya.net has exclusively obtained and published.

  1. I saw the video and the police officer who faced the terrorists had only a hand gun against AK47s. He is a very brave man indeed. I suspect most of us would have run off as fast as we could.

  2. I salute to the Security officer for being so brave and never felt scared and never thought of run away to save himself from danger. You are a real hero. God bless you!
