Saudi Arabia deported three Syrian staff members of the Syrian Consulate in Jeddah, a Saudi top official said on Thursday.

A Ministry of Foreign Affairs official was quoted by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) as saying that the “ministry would like to explain that this action has been taken in accordance with the public interest as authorities have concluded that their behaviors are incompatible with their consular duties and assignments.”

The explanation of the Saudi official came in response to a number of inquiries about the deportation by the Saudi authorities of the 3 staff members of the Jeddah-based Syrian Consulate General, SPA reported.
