BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:59 A.M.) – Unknown gunmen have shot dead a policeman in the oil-rich Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the Interior Ministry revealed.

The shooting near the central hospital in Qatif occurred late on Tuesday night when police attempted to stop a suspicious car.

The statement released by the Interior Ministry revealed that after the suspicious car opened fire at police, one of the officers was killed.

According to the ministry, police later managed to stop the suspects’ vehicle but they fled “while shooting randomly” in a doctor’s car they stole.

Eastern Saudi Arabia is the home of the puritanical kingdom’s Shi’ite minority.

Puritanical, for sure but, do they know that the military grades they have on their police/military shirt is a pagan symbol?
The ^ you see as grades mean the male fertility power in ancient pagan religions, in other terms, 3 like these = 3 dicks 😀 The more you have dicks, the highest your grade, ah, these boys 😉
Guess what a “V” meant 😉
Same meaning for triangles according to how they are oriented and if you superpose two triangles, you get the David’s Star, in other terms, this symbolises a couple having a fuck 😀
