On Monday, three suicide bombers targeted the U.S. consulate in Jeddah, the Mosque of the Prophet in the western city of Medina; and a Shia mosque in the eastern Qatif region.
According to Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki, the first attack in Jeddah -- which occurred at 2:15 a.m. local time (23:15 GMT Sunday) -- left only the suicide attacker dead.
Later the same day, al-Turki said, security forces thwarted an attempt by a suicide bomber to enter the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina, considered Islam’s second holiest site.
According to al-Turki, four security personnel were killed when they intercepted the bomber, who then detonated an explosive device.
The third attack reportedly occurred at roughly the same time when a suicide bomber blew himself up near a mosque in the Shia-majority Qatif region of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province.
The attacks have since been roundly condemned by numerous Arab and Muslim organizations and states, including Turkey, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon; the Gulf Cooperation Council; the Organization of Islamic Cooperation; the International Union of Muslim Scholars; Egypt’s Al-Azhar; Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood group; and Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.
Shia states and organizations have likewise condemned Monday’s triple attack, including Iran, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Yemen’s Houthi militant group.
