Tabuk- Saudi Arabia’s Emir of Tabuk Prince Fahd Bin Sultan said that the criminal and terrorist act staged by Nayer Musallam Al-Bluwi, suicide bomber who detonated himself in Medina, was an affliction which harmed the perpetrator before harming anyone else. Prince Fahd also added that the kin of Nayer are clear of any mischief delivered, are trustworthy and held high.

Musallam Hammad Al-Nijeidi Al-Bluwi, father of Nayer Musallam Al-Bluwi, was accompanied by brothers and uncles of Nayer and a group of citizens from their neighborhood, when received by Prince Fahd.

The kin of Nayer officially washed their hands of the heinous crime committed by the 26-year-old terrorist. They also slammed the terrorist act that is unacceptable by any religion.

The family reiterated that the perpetrator of such a disgraceful crime does not represent none other than him—their statements were made while renewing their loyalty to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Naif, and Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman.

The family gave their condolences to the bereaved families of victims and expressed deep sorrow over the martyrdom of security men in the suicide attack staged by Nayer.

The emir urged them to extend full cooperation with the concerned authorities. Prince Fahd also prayed Almighty Allah to shower His mercy on the martyred security men and give quick recovery to those wounded in the attack.

Nayer, 26, having a history of drug abuse, had staged a terrorist attack which killed four security men in the vicinity of the Prophet’s Mosque, in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

On July 4 the security men suspected a Saudi Arabian national, Nayer, who was walking towards the Prophet’s Mosque across an open area that is used as a car park for visitors. When trying to intercept him, he detonated the explosive lace he was wearing.
