Here we go again, from Al-Arabiya:
Three suicide bombings took place in the Saudi cities of Madinah and Qatif on Monday evening after a foiled attack earlier in the day in Jeddah.
One attack targeted security forces in the parking lot of Al-Haram al-Nabawi in Madinah, a mosque established and built by the Prophet Mohammad.
More from the Arab News:
Suicide bombers blew themselves up in Qatif and Madinah after sundown on Monday, several hours after Saudi security officers foiled an attack near the US Consulate in Jeddah.
In Madinah, a bomb exploded near a police post outside the Prophet’s Mosque, which was crowded with worshippers breaking their fast for the day, preliminary reports circulated on social media say.
A video circulated on social media showed a car burning and two security officers lying on the ground.
In Qatif, a governorate in the Eastern Province, two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the Faraj Al-Omran Mosque. No casualties were reported.
Earlier Monday at 2:15 a.m., a suicide bomber exploded himself up near the US Consulate when security officers confronted him as he moved suspiciously at a parking lot of the Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital.
Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, spokesman of the Ministry of Interior, said the bomber, in his 30s, was identified as an expatriate from the United Kingdom.
Photos taken from the scene showed the bomber’s body partially dismembered by the blast.
With Ramadan ending tonight, this could be a long 24 hours upcoming around the world as the Islamofacists take one more stab at disrupting Arab and Western society.
