Car rams into wall of Great Mosque of Mecca


Activists circulated on social media video footage showing a Saudi citizen ramming his car into the Islamic holy site of Mecca at insane speed.

According to the video, the Sanctuary’s surveillance cameras monitored a man who was reportedly driving drunk crossing the main gate of the compound and passing through the barriers until he hit one of the internal gates in the compound, smashing a number of glass windows and causing extensive damage.

The incident was responded to by security officers.

This incident is the first of its kind and a major scandal for the Saudi regime, which has prior allowed the use of alcohol in the city.
