Just a day after a story in The Washington Post reports on disturbances in the Eastern Province, without acknowledging Iranian efforts to mess around in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Gazette reports that an Iranian boat and 15 Iranians were seized off the coast of Al-Khafji. Coincidence, proof, something else? I’ll let the reader decide.
15 Iranian infiltrators arrested

RIYADH — The Directorate General of the Border Guard arrested Thursday 15 Iranian nationals during their attempt to infiltrate the Kingdom via the eastern coast in Al-Khafji region using an Iranian boat, said Navy Col. Khaled Khalifa Al-Arqoobi, Spokesman of the Border Guard in the Eastern Province.
Investigations are under way, he said.
This is the second time that an Iranian boat entered Saudi territorial waters illegally.
