The video above has the shooting and it was very, very intense. But then the official news from Saudi news sources (aka: SA fake news) is this barrage of gunfire was because of a small ‘drone toy’. I doubt this. We will never know what happened due to the SA being a vicious fascist dictatorship. This is our ‘ally’ in the Middle East. I wonder if the guards were shooting at each other? Anything is possible. This is one very unstable country about to erupt in chaos.
Saudi forces have shot down a toy drone near the royal palace in the capital, Riyadh, as videos posted online purported to show the area ringing with heavy gunfire.
The official spokesman of Riyadh police said on Saturday that security forces “dealt with” an unauthorised, small drone-type toy after spotting it at a security point in Khuzama neighbourhood, state-run news agency SPA said.
An investigation into the incident, which happened at 7:50pm (16:50 GMT), was under way, added SPA.
According to the Palace, the king was at his horse farm, not in Riyadh. But then, a coup attempt would happen when the dictator isn’t in the palace, all they have to do is take down his supporters there.
