Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)
“Attack near US consulate in Saudi city of Jeddah,” BBC, July 4, 2016:
A suspected suicide bomber has died after detonating a device near the US consulate in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, the interior ministry says.
Two security officers were slightly injured as they tackled the man, but no one else was hurt.
The attack came in the early hours of US Independence Day and shortly before dawn prayers marking the start of the daily Ramadan fast….
Security guards became suspicious of a man in the car park of the Dr Suleiman Faqeeh hospital around 02:15 (23:15 GMT Sunday), interior ministry spokesman Maj-Gen Mansour al-Turki said in a statement.
The hospital is opposite the US consulate.
As the guards approached the man, “he blew himself up with a suicide belt inside the hospital parking,” the statement said.
The US embassy in Saudi Arabia issued a warning after the attack, urging Americans to “remain aware of their surroundings, and take extra precautions when travelling throughout the country”.
