How Saudi Arabia Became New Target of Daesh Terrorists
According to the SPA news agency, Saudi Arabian security forces took measures after receiving information that a suspect joined the Daesh, while during detention he opened fire on policemen and was killed in retaliatory fire.

The person who accompanied the suspected terrorist was arrested, investigation into the case is ongoing, the news agency specified.

The Daesh has been countered since 2014 by an international coalition led by the United States, comprising about 60 countries, as well as a coalition of 34 Muslim nations established in December 2015 and led by Saudi Arabia, as well as by the Iranian, Turkish and Russian forces.
