“Saudi Arabia is fully dedicated to preventing terrorism in the Kingdom and around the world,” said Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir. “The surrender of Al-Faraj serves as an example to other extremists to come forward or face the persistent efforts of Saudi authorities.”

Saudi Arabia is committed to stopping terrorism in all its forms and continues to pursue the men, the money and the mindset that support this global threat. The Kingdom has forged partnerships with foreign governments and multilateral organizations to protect national security and reinforce counterterrorism strategies. Under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Sultan, Saudi Arabia remains an unwavering ally in combating terrorism and extremism worldwide.
