Three terror strike in 24 hours on Saudi Arabia is a clear indication terrorist does not belong to any religion. During the holy month of Ramadan they detonating bombs near security officers were breaking their Ramadan fast, al-Arabiya TV said.
Footage on the TV network showed a blasted vehicle. There are no details of casualties and no official comment.
Ironically the mosque is the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad who supposed to be the man who spread Islamic faith and blessed by all mighty and Medina the second-holiest city in Islam after Mecca. Shame on the people who are playing with religion.
State-linked Sabq news and the Okaz newspaper also carried reports of the suicide attack.
Earlier, at least one explosion rocked the eastern city of Qatif.
Minority Shia Muslims base Qatif also had the blast appeared to target a Shia mosque. No casualties have been reported so far.
A suspected suicide bomber also died after detonating a device near the US consulate in the city of Jeddah. Two security officers were slightly injured as they tackled the man, but no-one else was hurt.
Social media footage from Medina showed a vehicle on fire in a car park, with two security officers lying nearby.
Other footage showed ambulances and police vehicles streaming to the area.
It is not clear who is behind any of the attacks.
The attacks come with the holy month of Ramadan drawing to a close and ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.
As off now none one has claimed the responsibility but all eyes leading to the ISIS terror. Who ever is funding and supporting this acts must be brought under global criminal tribunal with highest possible punishment to avoid any such future plans from any devils mind.
An appeal to all let’s build the strongest bond of humanity with out any color of any form and counter the handful of goons with love,respect and universal brotherhood to win over the terror factors. ISIS and like minded factors will never win as demons can not win over all mighty.
