Saudi finalizing drone regulation following incident near royal palaceā€

Saudi Arabia is reportedly floating, once again, the idea of sending its own troops to Syria as part of a coalition of forces to promote security and order in the country.

Saudi security forces shot down a small recreational drone flying in an unauthorized space in the capital Riyadh on Saturday, according to the kingdom's state news agency.

An unnamed senior Saudi official told Reuters news agency that King Salman was not in his palace at the time of Saturday's incident.

After reports of heavy gunfire near the Royal Palace in Riyadh, many people got scared and confused it to an attempted coup on the holy land of Saudi Arabia.

Asked about the footage, the official said the drone had been shot down, and added that the government would introduce regulations for the use of recreational drones.

In 2015, the Saudi civil aviation authority banned the use of remotely controlled drones "of all types and sizes" without prior permits.
