General Info:
Mohammed Hussein Al-Ammar is the most wanted terror suspect that was captured in Qatif without any shots being fired, after information was received confirming his location.

He was on a “most-wanted” list of nine terror suspects issued by the Ministry of Interior and the state security services on May 1, 2017. Al-Ammar is the only person on the list to be captured alive so far.

Al-Ammar is accused of security-related crimes, including targeting citizens, residents and security officers, vandalizing public, security and economic facilities, and causing disruption in Qatif and Dammam.

Al-Ammar is considered one of the most dangerous terrorists on the list. His alleged crimes include involvement in the kidnapping and killing of Judge Mohammed Al-Jarani, thefts, several armed attacks on security officers, the targeting of a security patrol, armed robberies, and throwing Molotov cocktails at a government building.

In addition, he is accused of taking part in armed raids on armored cars in Qatif and Al-Majidiyah, including one in which a security guard was killed and another wounded.

Judge Al-Jirani was kidnapped in December 2016 outside his home in the town of Tarout. His kidnappers killed him and hid the body in an abandoned farm area known as Salihiya. His remains were discovered after an extensive search operation lasting more than a year.

He had been shot in the chest. Investigators concluded that the kidnappers had tortured him, dug a grave, put him in it, then shot him and buried the body.

At this moment, no connections were found with this entity.
