Drone near Saudi palace shot down, sparking coup fears

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.

An Interior Ministry spokesman claimed a law for its usage of drones was at its last period and also called on people to acquire the essential authorities clearance to make use of the apparatus "to get specific causes in permitted locations", state news agency SPA reported.

Amateur video clips of heavy gunfire from the Khozama district Saturday of the capital sparked worries of possible unrest.

But the government ruled out any major security breach, adding that an investigation had been launched into the incident.

Earlier this month, Saudi forces said they intercepted rebel ballistic missiles fired at Riyadh and the south of the kingdom, where two drones were also shot down.

Saudi official said King Salman was not at the palace when the incident took place. Notable clerics also have been detained in a clear bid.

Although Saudi Arabia's Interior Ministry told drone lovers to get permission before flying.

Although the Saudi government does not disclose official statistics of individuals on death row, ESOHR's statistics confirm that 42 people are facing imminent execution, including 8 persons who were children at the time of the offence, and detainees who were sentenced to death for offences that do not cross the most serious crimes threshold required by worldwide law, including attending demonstrations, exercising freedom of expression and opinion, as well as the exercise of religious rites relating to the Shi'a monitory.

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.
