Saudi Authorities Impose Fresh Restrictions on Drones

Israel-Saudi liaison

The UAE based Gulf News reports from Riyadh says that Saudi Arabian security forces said they shot down a "recreational drone" in the capital after online videos showing gunfire in a neighbourhood where royal palaces were located.

There was no information of where the king was.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, SPA, security forces spotted an unauthorised small recreational drone flying over the city's Khuzama district at 19:50 pm on Saturday and "dealt with it according to orders and instructions in this regard".

The authenticity of the videos could not be verified.

"The regulation for the use of remote controlled drones is in its final stages", the statement said.

Even the 32-year-old leader ousted his elderly cousin as crown prince past summer at a palace coup after which jailed senior royals as part of an anticorruption sweep.

Saudi official said King Salman was not at the palace when the incident took place.

In October 2017, two security guards were killed by Mansour al-amri, a young Saudi national armed with Kalashinkov rifle who drove up to a gate of the king's palace in Jeddah.

However, they also have fueled speculation about a potential backlash against the crown, that remains favored by the burgeoning youth population of Saudi Arabia.

Most of the detainees have been released after reaching settlements with the government.

Marvel blockbuster Black Panther made history this week when it became one of the first films to screen in the the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since movie theaters were banned 35 years ago. Notable clerics also have been detained in a clear bid.

Those moves have helped MBS consolidate his position in a country where power had been shared among senior princes for decades and religious figures exercised significant influence on policy.
