My first cover from Saudi Arabia!

Here is my first cover from Saudi Arabia! Many thanks to Ganesh!

The first 2 stamps belong to the "Bani Shaba Door" definitive stamps, issued on 11th March 1986. Next, is a beautiful stamp from the "King Fahid Industrial Port Yanboa" series. It was issued on 26th May 2002. This cover was postmarked in Al Khobar and traveled an estimated distance of 6,353kms. Can anyone who knows arabic words, please enlighten me on the postmark date. Thanks!
