A Saudi video depicting the Kingdom’s military forces taking over Iran and then being greeted as liberators has gone viral on social media.
The video was posted by an anonymous Saudi user last week on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It has since been publicised by official Saudi media.
It begins by showing a Saudi aid ship on a humanitarian mission in the Gulf, which soon comes under attack from Iranian forces in nearby attack boats.
Saudi back-up soon arrives and fires at the Iranian boats, blowing them up. Saudi aircraft are then deployed and soon destroy Iranian planes. Riyadh then continues its offensive, successfully targeting Iran’s Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, Badr Airbase, and Mehrabad International Airport.
A land attack is then launched on Iran, with the video showing tanks and Saudi troops parachuting down into the country. Finally, the video shows Tehran being completely conquered by Saudi Arabia, leading to a massive celebration in the city centre. Iranians are seen holding Saudi flags and photos of the Saudi Crown Prince.
The video’s release comes amid ongoing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran, both of which accuse each other of supporting terrorism.
As you’re here…
5Pillars have one humble request from you…
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
