US Justice announced the deportation of 21 Saudi military students


The US Attorney General and Attorney General William Barr announced, on Monday, the deportation of 21 Saudi military students, against the background of the shooting incident at a military base in Florida, describing it as a “terrorist act.”

This came during a press conference, to announce the results of the investigation into the shooting incident, which occurred at an air naval base in the city of Pensacola, according to the network, “CNN” America.

Barr said investigators concluded that the shooting incident last month at Pensacola Base, Florida was a terrorist act.

The shooter posted a message on social media in September stating that “the countdown has started.”

Barr said several other messages were posted on social media, including a post two hours before the attack.

The US minister noted that his country decided to exclude 21 Saudi military students from the American training program and return them to their country, according to the “Associated Press” America.

On December 13, the Pentagon announced a ban on leaving the “Pensacola” air base in Florida on the friends of the Saudi pilot who launched an armed attack inside the base, killing him and 3 others.

Last December 6, the second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force, Mohammed Al-Shamrani, opened fire with his pistol inside a training hall at the Pensacola base, which resulted in the death of three people and eight injuries, before being returned by the police.

The base of the attack included 16 thousand soldiers and more than 7 thousand and 400 civilians.

The shooting in Florida is the second this week, which is located at a military base in the United States.
