Saudi attacks underscore evolving drone threat, experts say

Saudi attacks underscore evolving drone threat, experts sayAn attack on Saudi oil facilities at the weekend has exposed the vulnerability of the kingdom to drone strikes and underscores how traditional air defences can be breached by new low-cost technology, experts say. Saudi Arabia is one of the world's biggest buyers of weapons and spent an estimated $ 65 billion on arms last year, mostly from the United States, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). Its air defences include the latest radars, fighter jets such as the F-15, and Patriot missiles which are meant to intercept missiles fired from enemy territory.
