Saudi Arabia appears to be deploying Canadian-made armoured vehicles against its own citizens

The rulers of Saudi Arabia appear to be deploying Canadian-made armoured vehicles against its own citizens in an escalating conflict that has already elicited public criticism from the Trudeau government.

This is the first time that video footage has surfaced on various social media websites, allegedly showing the Islamic kingdom using Canadian weaponized equipment against its Saudi civilians – a development that spurred calls Friday for the Liberal government to halt defence exports to the oil-rich nation.

The House of Saud’s use of combat machines against its Shia population in eastern Saudi Arabia goes to the very heart of the controversy over whether the Trudeau government is violating Canada’s weapons export-control rules.
