Saudi security operation kills two in Qatif

Two individuals were killed and others captured in a "preemptive" security task in Saudi Arabia's eastern Qatif region, Saudi-claimed Al Arabiya TV said on Tuesday.

Qatif, in an oil-creating area and home to a substantial Shi'ite populace, is a flashpoint between the Sunni-ruled government and minority Shi'ites griping of separation and minimization. Saudi specialists deny those charges. 

The general population killed on Monday had declined to surrender and afterward started shooting at security powers, Al-Arabiya revealed, refering to anonymous security sources. They had been needed over supposed disturbances to security and improvement extends in the zone, it included. 

Unconfirmed photos shared before via web-based networking media demonstrated a bloodied body conveyed in a canvas by men wearing uniform, and homes pitted with projectile openings. An online video seemed to demonstrate a military vehicle terminating in a neighborhood. 


Shi'ite challenges and fatal aggressor assaults on security powers have heightened since Nimr al-Nimr, a Shi'ite priest reproachful of Saudi Arabia's decision family, was executed two years prior on charges of inducing brutality. (Announcing
