Two muslim activists killed as Saudi regime forces storm Dammam

At least two political dissidents have been killed in when Saudi regime forces raided a village in the kingdom’s oil-rich and Shia-populated Eastern Province, as a crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman against pro-democracy campaigners, Muslim preachers and intellectuals continues unabated in the country.

Local sources, requesting anonymity, said security forces stormed into al-Anoud neighborhood of the provincial capital of Dammam, located about 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of the capital Riyadh, on Wednesday afternoon, triggering an exchange of gunfire with local residents.

The sources added that two opposition figures were fatally shot in the process.

On December 2, Saudi regime’s Specialized Criminal Court sentenced five anti-regime dissidents from Eastern Province to death.
