Saudi youth have denounced the fabricated video clip titled ‘Hell on Earth’ being circulated on social media by Ethiopian activists to tarnish the image of Saudi Arabia following its crackdown on illegals.
Illegal Ethiopians sought to portray a negative image of Saudi Arabia’s handling of the rioting perpetrated by them in Riyadh and Jeddah.
The Saudis posted photos of actual events that had taken place in recent days, reiterating how well Saudi forces handled the mob of illegals.
“What has been circulated by the Ethiopian activists online is false and was aimed at tarnishing the Saudi image,” one Saudi said.
Most of the events depicted in the Ethiopian video had taken place in countries like Lebanon and Yemen a few years ago, he said. “This shows that the video clip was concocted and has nothing to do with the truth.”
Saudi youth defended the crackdown, saying it is the Kingdom’s sovereign right to put an end to crimes and safeguard its security and stability.
To counteract the falsifications of the previous video, Saudis have circulated a new clip through YouTube showing Saudi forces helping Ethiopians. The Saudi video shows police distributing food and water among illegals at shelter camps.
Brig. Nasser Al-Qahtani, spokesman of the Riyadh police, said authorities had protected the rights of Ethiopians and their children by meeting their basic needs and spending up to SR200,000 daily. “We have also arranged 300 buses to transport illegals to the shelters. We have rented 90 rest houses to accommodate them and set up clinics for patients.”
