Saudi Arabia executes 37 citizens accused of terrorism

Many of the 37 accused terrorists executed in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday were convicted for  orchestrating violence and unrest in the kingdom’s Eastern Province. They were accused of “adopting extremist ideology, forming terrorist cells, provoking sectarian strife and attacking security targets.” They were also charged with collaborating with “hostile parties” against the interests of the country. This was the first mass execution in Saudi Arabia since January 2016. Then too the 47 condemned men were charged with violent actions with arms provided by Iran.

    When will Saudis put Mahmoud bin Salman to the sword for ordering the murder of Jamal Khashoggi?
    That was a terrorist act of significant proportion which weakened Saudi alliances with the U.S. and other western nations!

    @Mike 71, that was bad act indeed. Does your standard apply to the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran & its proxies who committed crime against innocent.

        Khashoggi was a activist for the Muslim Brotherhood under the guise of a writer/journalist. That’s why he was killed .

    It would be great if Israel adopted the death penalty in dealing with terrorists. It’s about time to do this.
