On 12 August 2022, an individual detonated an explosives-laden belt at a residence in the al-Samer neighborhood of the city of Jeddah as authorities attempted to arrest him. The bomber was killed and four others were injured, including a Pakistani national and three security personnel. Authorities suspect the man, who was linked to the Islamic State group, of being involved in a 2015 mosque bombing in Aseer province that killed 15 people.
