Three explosions by suspected suicide bombers have occurred in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as the annual Ramadan fast is coming to an end. The first suicide blast, which was foiled by security operatives, took place near a U.S. consulate in the coastal city of Jeddah. A spokesperson of the Saudi government said the attack was carried out by an “expatriate in his 30s”. Hours later, the Saudi news agency reported about another suicide blast near a mosque in the city of Qatif, in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province and one more terrorist, who “blew himself up near a police post at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah.”
The Saudi Interior Ministry is reportedly investigating the case. Yesterday a suicide bombing killed at least 120 people in central Baghdad, Iraq. Days before it twin explosions and gunfire have rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk international airport, killing up to 36 and wounding more than 40 people. Civilians of at least three different countires were attacked by the Islamic State terrorists in recent days.
