Two terrorists wanted by Saudi Arabia were reported to have been killed in the confrontations between the army and the Houthi rebels in northern Yemen, the Saudi-published issue of the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper has reported.
Citing Saudi informed sources, the paper said one of the two wanted terrorists, Fahd Saleh Sulaiman Al-Jatili, 27, has been identified and the other terrorist whose name was on a list of 85 most wanted suspects released by Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry in February along with Al-Jatili’s name was not.
Othman Al-Ghamedi and Yousuf Al-Shahri, who are also on the most wanted list, called their families asking them to inform the Al-Jatili’s family of the death of their fellow, according to the paper.
The family then contacted the police in the kingdom in an attempt to confirm the death.
The mother of Al-Shahri, by telephone, told the paper her son called her on the second day of Eid congratulating her upon the Eid Al-Fitr and telling her about the death of his relative Al-Jatili.
Al-Jatili left Saudi Arabia eight years ago for Qatar and then for Afghanistan where he was arrested and sent to the U.S. jail in Guantanamo, Cuba. He was sent back to his homeland three years ago.
