On Wednesday, security officials at the Prince Mohammad bin Abdul Aziz International Airport in the kingdom's city of Medina stated they seized a parcel containing what they described as a "witchcraft spell". 

According to Akhbaar 24 news site, the package, which was sent from outside the country, contained a product of black magic.

It also included papers that had several people's names printed on them. It is thought that the people mentioned in the documents were meant to be "targets of sorcerous spells".

Soon after they made the finding, customs officers called on the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice to undo the black magic found in the parcel. 

The Committee is known to have a department which is entirely dedicated to fighting witchcraft. Earlier last year, the organization even led a training program titled "development of scientific skills in the fight against witchcraft". 

Naturally, the news is going viral

Just hours after the bizarre news broke online, it went viral on Saudi social media, sparking a frenzy. 

Here's a little of what people are saying: 

Some are pretty worried over the incident...

"They must investigate who sent this, there are people who still don't understand that witchcraft goes against God's teachings." 

"La 'ilaha 'illa llah"

Others aren't buying it though

"Minds that are filled with myth are empty." 

Black magic is considered a crime in the kingdom

Saudi Arabia continuously cracks down on anyone thought to be practicing any form of "black magic" within the country. 

In 2009, the kingdom's government created and formalized a special "Anti-Witchcraft Unit" aimed to educate the public about the evils of sorcery and investigate alleged witches. 

"We deal with sorcerers in a special way. No one should think that we mention the name of whomever files a report about sorcery [sic]," Sheikh Adel Faqih, the country's minister of economy and planning, once said

That same year, at least 118 people were charged with "practicing magic" or "using the book of Allah in a derogatory manner" in Mecca.
