Situation in Saudi Arabia Nearing Explosion

The situation in Saudi Arabia is nearing a social and political blast as Takfiri armed rebels are returning home from Syria after sustaining huge losses, defeats and failures in there, media reports cautioned on Saturday, FNA reported.

"The condition of Saudi Arabia is moving towards explosion and its situation is no better than other countries which are currently witnessing difficult conditions".

"It won't last long before the current popular protests overwhelm the country because at present you can witness uproar in Saudi Arabia which is not just restricted to its Eastern parts," the sources added.

The sources said violence will likely return to Saudi Arabia soon when state and western interests will be targeted because the aftershocks of terrorism have already started and the victory of  President Bashar al-Assad against the terrorists will force them to leave Syria for other regional countries, including Saudi Arabia, which will be a beginning for the return of terrorists to the countries where they have originated from.

Thousands of Turks join ongoing protests defying Erdogan

 Thousands of infuriated Turks took to the streets on Saturday to join mass anti-government protests, defying Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s call to end the worst civil unrest of his decade-long rule, Al-Manar reported.

From the early morning, protesters began arriving in Istanbul's Taksim Square with food and blankets to settle in for a weekend of protests, adding to the growing tent city in nearby Gezi Park.

Fresh demonstrations were also planned in the capital Ankara as the unrest entered its ninth day.

Turkish police have been criticized strongly for using excessive force against peaceful protests. Police have used tear gas and water cannon to disperse demonstrators, injuring thousands and leaving three dead.

Turkey's trouble began when police cracked down heavily on a small campaign to save Gezi Park from demolition, spiraling into nationwide demos against Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP), seen as increasingly authoritarian.
