As the world braces for the coronavirus pandemic, Saudi Arabia has stepped up its support for rebels fighting to overthrow the monarchy.
On Monday, Saudi security forces raided a prominent hotel in Riyadh, seizing documents and other items from the rooms of people who were in the hotel during the coronaveal crisis, including a list of people suspected of supporting the uprising against the monarchy and supporting the Islamic State (ISIS).
On Monday night, King Salman announced a $50 million package of security equipment to Saudi security services, including night vision goggles, night vision cameras, night-vision goggles and night-time radio communications equipment, as well as armored vehicles and ammunition, including machine guns and mortars, in response to the raid.
The King said the government will not hesitate to use force if necessary to protect the kingdom’s security.
On Tuesday, King Abdullah issued a decree that allows the kingdom to deploy troops to Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Persian Gulf region if needed to “ensure that Saudi Arabia, and the Arab world, is fully aware of the threat posed by [the Islamic State] and its supporters.”
On Tuesday night, Saudi Interior Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal announced that Saudi security agencies would be deploying more than 2,500 additional police and military personnel to the kingdom, with the purpose of assisting local authorities with fighting the spread of the virus.
He also announced the creation of an anti-terrorist task force in the capital, Riyadh, to coordinate the Saudi military response to this crisis.
“The kingdom will use its full forces and resources to protect its citizens from all forms of harm,” Prince Saud said, as he announced the deployment of 1,000 Saudi troops to the Persian gulf region.
The King also announced a massive expansion of the kingdoms national health insurance program, expanding coverage to 9 million people and offering incentives to encourage the purchase of the program.
King Abdullah also announced that his cabinet is to form an advisory panel to study the risks posed by the coronava virus and provide recommendations for measures to be taken to prevent the spread.
In addition to expanding the health insurance coverage, King Saud said the new national health care plan will cover 2.4 million people, including 2 million children, and is designed to cover people who need it most, including people who have recently traveled to Saudi Arabian territories, as they seek to avoid the virus outbreak.
The King said that the new plan will be in place for six months and will provide more coverage for people who live outside the kingdom.
He added that people living outside the Kingdom will be covered under the plan for up to three months after they leave.
Meanwhile, Saudi officials have been using social media to share videos that show the kingdom supporting the rebellion.
The videos, which are often shared by Saudi government-affiliated channels, show people, mostly young women, cheering and applauding the rebels.
Saudi officials have also been using their social media accounts to promote their country’s “revenge” campaign against the Islamic Republic.
On Tuesday, they used the hashtag #BringBackOurKing, which they used to post videos on Twitter and Instagram depicting the King’s support for the rebels and the coronaves outbreak.
In the past few weeks, the Kingdom has been using a number of different platforms to promote its response to a coronaviosis outbreak, including social media, television, and billboards.
In the past week alone, King Mohammed VI and King Salman both visited the United States to promote the coronas outbreak, and on Wednesday, the King also visited a hospital in the United Kingdom to show support to patients in the U.S.
A spokesman for the Saudi embassy in the US did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Kings trip to the U, and did not respond to questions about whether or not the King has used social media since his coronavacias visit.
