Public Prosecution in Saudi Arabia requested Wednesday the execution of a Saudi citizen, who pledged alliance to Leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and killed a number of civilians and security men, including his cousin.
The defendant lured his cousin in a desert area in Hail to hunt birds on the first day of Eid al-Adha. He tied him up with ropes at gunpoint and shot him.
He also documented the assassination in a video, which he posted on social media as the victim used to work in the Saudi armed forces sector.
The video revealed the truth of the terrorist organization, which is not based on a legal principle, especially that the killer entered the courtroom of the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh on a bed because he was injured during the clashes.
He told the judge that his case was clear and did not require continuous hearing sessions, although he did not communicate with anyone in Saudi Arabia or abroad.
According to the indictment in the case of the accused, he spent most of his time browsing social networking sites, learning about events in conflict sites, including Syria, and their support for the killing of security men, which led his influence by ISIS.
The defendant asked his father to apply for a passport for him so he can travel to Syria.
The defendant schemed the assassination of his cousin with his brother. They all went to the desert to hunt migratory birds and were supposed to return home after that.
After their arrival, the ISIS militant stopped the car and along with his brother, they tied their cousin with ropes at gunpoint. The defendant asked his brother to shoot a video of the assassination, he then pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and killed his cousin.
The defendant’s brother spread the video on social media, and they left the murder site and kept the corps of their cousin there.
The unemployed perpetrator of the crime, who possesses a high school certificate, went to Amaer bin Sanaa police station. He parked his car behind the building and climbed it along with his brother carrying two machine guns to kill security officers.
They entered the station and killed two security officers and then went to another village and attacked security men, killing one.
Following these attacks, the two militants ran away to a deserted area and were later caught by security forces.
