Saudi security forces arrest another wanted terrorist

The Ministry of Interior has announced the arrest last night of Zafer bin Abdulrahman Al-Shehri. On the morning of June 28, when challenged to surrender himself to security, he opened fire, seriously wounding one of the security officers, and then escaped. Thanks to the cooperation of his relatives, he was located in an abandoned house. After a search, the security forces found, among other things, a cache of 50 machine guns and accessories, about 10 pounds of gunpowder, and fake identity documents. The Ministry urges all citizens and families to cooperate with the security forces to locate anyone who seeks to harm the country's security.
