Breaking: Possible #Coup underway in #SaudiArabia as heavy gunfire is heard near the presidential palace in #Riyadh.
INCREDIBLY heavy gunfire now in #Riyadh.
The biggest rumor at the moment is that the prince of #SaudiArabia has been evacuated. Still waiting for confirmation.
Gunfire continues, with occasional explosions mixed in. Going to be a very long night in #Riyadh.

The London based #Saudi popular political satirist is claiming that the King was moved to a nearby airbase for "his own safety". So far, there is NO indication of any gunfire near the King's Ouja palace on local media.

The only alternatives for Al Saud are the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda, so think twice ... even Hasan Nasrullah warned many times from the catastrophic results of any regime change in Saudi Arabia
that's bad, that could be very very very bad

Insane amount of confusion within #Riyadh at this hour. Not much is known, nor will it be for quite sometime.

I'm only sharing video clips at this point. Too much nonsense buzzing around right now for me to make claims.

Possible, I suppose. Would certainly show how jumpy anti-air units in #Riyadh are, lately.

Heard it was a drone that got too close to the palace and was shot down by the Royal Guard.

There is definitely fighting going on around the Palace of the Saudi King.
Some reports suggest a Palace coup.
But some sources claiming attack by Yemeni Houthis.
Situation is unclear....its night time and NO official reports are possible.
All sources are Saudis so far..
