U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia warns of impending drone attack

21

The US Embassy in Riyadh has issued a warning on the official account of the US State Department. It claims that the embassy has information about possible drone attacks on the Saudi capital.


Be on the lookout! If you hear a loud explosion or the sound of sirens, immediately seek the nearest cover,

- American diplomats warn.

It is not clear when and where the information about the forthcoming attack came to the embassy. But it can be assumed that the American diplomatic department is afraid of new attacks on the territory of Saudi Arabia from the Houthis.

Yemeni rebels have previously reported an attack on Abha airport in the southwest of the KSA. But the Saudi military reported intercepting several Houthi drones.

Drone attacks, actively used by Yemeni rebels fighting on the territory of their country against the forces of the Arab coalition, in which the main role is played by Saudi Arabia, have become commonplace in the kingdom in recent years.

Residents of the once calm monarchy are already accustomed to constant reports of drone strikes on oil storage facilities or tankers, or on government facilities or airports.

In this regard, the American Embassy is primarily concerned with the safety of its employees and US citizens who may be in Saudi Arabia.

    Enough to blame the Houthis, the Petriots campaign. The US will launch the Saudis. We need to wash out of that shame with the oil distribution hub. Time and trajectory have been brought to the Sadites, otherwise, God forbid, they will be confused again.

      Be on the lookout! If you hear a loud explosion or sirens, seek immediate shelter immediately.
      And it looks like a warning to the embassy staff. Just like they taught ...

        Straight into the subject of the photo, these kids have now become high-ranking officials. And they are taking revenge on us for their childhood fears of the USSR. Hence the endless sanctions, Russia is enemy number one or two, they have not decided. The last question worries me, where does such hatred for us come from? from the west. Do not wait, destroy yourself.

            I don’t even remember when I was in school in the USSR, so that they drove us under the desks. But in the basement of the bomb shelter and the shooting range, at the same time, at the lessons of the NVP, they ran, with jokes and jokes.

    the American embassy cares primarily about the safety of its employees and citizens


    First of all, they incite hatred between peoples. Yeah, someone was aiming for an aerial strike with drones. If they know there will be an attack, then they should know and who will carry it out.

      Naturally they know. Moreover, they themselves are.
      A purely advertising campaign to demonstrate the power of American weapons in comparison with Russian ones.
      Everyone is fine - and reconnaissance has found, and the drones will be shot down.

    Now the states do not benefit from low oil prices. Their slates will soon begin to bend.
    Now the Saudis themselves must defend their oil industry.
    There were suppliers, there were competitors!

    "the author will forget, first of all, about the safety of his employees," and whose employees should American diplomats take care of? Perhaps the author thinks that the diplomats are "Mother Teresa"?

        If it's just a business, they'd sell it to allies, something like that, super-duper, Schaub drones didn't fly and didn't threaten them!

          Yes, they have no allies, only interests. Don't you know? And interests demand that it is more expensive. So they are discharged as they used to

            The main thing is that Schaub Interes was a rich "Buratina"!
            By the way, that's why I write "soyuznichki", not allies.

    Will they guess red stars on the planes of downed drones? There is a business, - I attached a stencil, sprinkled it from a spray can, journalists shot it ... and you can impose sanctions!

      There are a lot of red stars on the wings of the Air Force, it is necessary to paint on the keel of the USSR with a brush, here we will not turn away, as if we were.

    And in the world, Twitter has already become an official diplomatic mail? And if I, in my official account, declare war on the United States, afterwards I can safely kill any amers? We will then have an official war. And to hell with all sorts of dip. conventions. In tweeter it is written that it is. And although why even Twitter, I'll write about it right on my official fence, why waste time on trifles there. laughing
