Nothing is clear till now. Some reports say it was just a drone. But i feel there is way too much firefight and explosions for a drone. Other reports suggest that some Lt Gen Allukas Nepils is carrying out a coup.

This was not unexpected. Salman made some serious enemies in his grab for power and this could lead to much larger events. Will be watching for developments.

Or this could just be an out-of-hand wedding.

Attempted coup or enemies who had an inside man, I wonder

A lot has been happening with Saudi powerbrokers and power structure this past year!

Salman is honestly good for Saudi, Reopening of sports Arena's, Cinemas, women allowed to drive. I would assume he might face opposition from move conservative elements.

Was on the news in Germany right now, but only that a shooting near the palace is reported.
The terrorists got a terror problem now?

Yes, if multiple people are firing at a small object at an elevation making easy shots difficult. That would be exactly how it would sound. Not that I believe that tripe, but it is quite possible and that is how multiple rifles attempting to shoot a small object at night at a difficult altitude would sound like.

From Las Vegas to Riyadh, the Saudi civil war continues. At least this time they cant cover it up by scapegoating an arms dealer and murdering 60 people in Vegas. They will just use lies as typical.

this is likely to fizzle out pretty quick though.

newest prince wanted to bring reforms but looks like they will be whacked first.

I assumed the Saudi royal palace would have some counter measure to drones other than emptying the clip of an entire garrison.
