Saudi Prince Dies in Helicopter Crash Near Yemen Border:

Saudi Prince Mansour bin Mukrin, deputy government of Asir province, was killed when a helicopter carrying several high officials crashed near the Yemen border after disappearing from radar. The cause of the crash was not revealed, but it took place a day after a ballistic missile fired by Iran-backed Yemeni rebels at Riyadh’s airfield was intercepted by a Patriot. Prince Mansour was the son of Prince Muqrin al-Saud, Crown Prince during the reign of King Abdullah. Muqrin is a firm opponent of the incumbent King Salman and his son, Crown Prince Muhammad.

    Sorry Debka, I’m more interested about crashes with shiatollahs, by helicopter of course, but would accept also by plane, why to get too picky?

    This incident is definitely linked to the ballistic missile attack on Riyadah and certainly not linked to the Zionist purge. Debka confirms.

    I didn’t know that the Saudis flew Russian helicopters.
