BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – A group of Saudi soldiers were pictured desecrating a Shiite mosque on Tuesday after harassing civilians inside the ‘Awamiya District of the Qatif Province.

In the pictures released of the Saudi regime forces, their soldiers were seen inside the Shiite house of worship after destroying the building.

The soldiers were then pictured standing atop of photos of the slain Shiite preacher, Sheikh Nimr Al-Nimr, who is from the Qatif Province of east Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi regime forces have recently taken to social media to brag about the ‘Awamiya siege that has displaced thousands of civilians and killed several other residents.

The Al-Saud regime maintains that their forces are carrying out a ‘necessary’ operation to clear the ‘Awamiya District of ‘terrorists.’
