Published: Updated:

A documentary series set to debut on Dec. 2 on the Al Arabiya News Channel reveals never-seen-before footage of al-Qaeda’s operations in Saudi Arabia and the subsequent raids and crackdowns on the group by authorities.

More than ten years on, a TV series on the attack aired by the Al Arabiya News Channel, showing an inside look into al-Qaeda after hours of footage from cameras and mobile phones were recovered and released by Saudi security officials.

Among the footage, a video showing how al-Qaeda members changing their vehicle’s plate number ironically to indicate the 72 Virgins who they think they were waiting them once they carry out the attacks.
