Saudi Prince Mocked for Claiming Iran Can Be Destroyed in 8 Hours

Riyadh Left Alone by Arab Allies in Anti-Iran Campaign: Analyst  

A Saudi prince has been derided by social media users after claiming that Riyadh is capable of destroying Iran in a matter of hours.

Abdullah bin Sultan Nasser Al Saud posted a video on Twitter page which he says belongs to two years ago and shows an expert talking on a Saudi TV channel about Saudi Arabia’s military equipment.

At the end of the video, it is claimed that Riyadh can destroy Iran only in eight hours.

On his Twitter page, the prince echoed the so-called expert’s opinion and wrote “Saudi Arabia can destroy Iran in eight hours.”

He added the video clip belongs to two years ago, i.e., before Riyadh bought modern military hardware and before it upgraded its military systems. The prince claimed there is no power in the world which can stand up to Riyadh’s “unity and strength.”

The prince’s claim received widespread reaction from Twitter users many of whom ridiculed his comments.

Many of the users referred to the Saudi war on Yemen which has taken almost five years during which Riyadh has failed to achieve its objectives.

This is while Saudi Arabia had claimed at the beginning of the war that it would win the war in a matter of weeks.

  1. To my understanding there is no point of fighting each other , either it’s among the Islamic countries or east or west. The world should endeavour to be united. After all we all are human being and we should learn to live as brother and sister as we created by Allah, the almighty. May Allah bless all of us.

  2. Brother dont fight brother,they give advice how to deal with their enemy.
    Saudi Arabia are coming into civilization now shown by the west! Iran is following the civiliztion left by our prophet helping one another

  3. Unity is the need of the hour.
    Go by what the Prophet preached.
    Patience is virtue.
    Don’t have egos. It’s time to unite and bring about peace and prosperity to all.
    Islam is tolerance and deviating from the right path is moving away from the tenets of Islam.
    Live n let live in peace and harmony away from discord and slander, fellow brothers.

  4. War of words should be kept away.why we don’t talk about peace,brotherhood and friendship at all levels ?? Does Islam teaches such language ? Iran and Saudis must engage themselves in fruitful dialogues, rather sit in trap of the west & USA.Peaceful living is the best option.

  5. You mean the uncivilized and barbaric saudis? The trash that are servant of the west? The savages can dream on..I think the Iranians can end the entire royal garbage in 2 hours…
