Saudi authorities thwarted a terrorist operation in the al-Onoud neighborhood in the eastern city of Dammam.


Security forces killed two “terrorists” on Wednesday after a shooting in the residential neighborhood, state television al-Ekhbariya reported.


“Two wanted terrorists were killed after exchanging fire with security forces,” al-Ekhbariya TV said, without giving further details.


Informed sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that the security forces had been surveilling the assailants and chose to close in on them to neutralize their threat.


Calm was restored to the residential neighborhood in Dammam after the operation, al-Ekhbariya added.
