Sheikh Rashed Al-humood called him around 5.45 am on Thursday the 2nd of August 1990 and told him that the Iraqis where on the borders of Kuwait. Sheikh fahad told sheikh Rashed to come to him fast, when sheikh rashed arrived, sheikh fahad insisted on driving the car, Mr. Hamed AL-Sa\'eed accompanied them too to Dasman place. When they arrived Dasman, Sheikh Fahad noticed that there was something wrong, there were no guards to greet him, sheikh Rashed saw an Iraqi sniper and he shouted out to sheikh Fahad "look out!\' but it was late and the bullet went into sheikh Fahad\'s neck.
