    Why no news about the public attacking Naval camp and twelve of them hospitalized. Now they need Arab law here.

    All those who attacked Navy personals shall be jailed. How can the law enforcement enforce the law if these things happened.We always blame law enforcement for not enforcing the law and eradicate corruptions.All those who attacked law enforcement shall be punished!
