A bit of duct tape , a couple of cans of spray paint and all should be good .

Actually this is not a SAUDIA aircraft, it is operated by ACT (A Turkish Cargo airline) on behalf of them. ACT has had rather a chequered history. They were flying a fleet of Airbus A300's for a long time, all of them very old airframes, and there were, I remember quite a few 'scrapes'.
Furthermore Turkish aviation is NOT the safest if one were to check the facts and figures. Starting a few years ago with a B737 that landed short of the runway in AMS. There has been a Private jet out of DXB that was lost over Iran, a B737 that slid off the runway in Turkey, two ground incidents at (old) IST within just a few months of each other, and just last week a Pegasus B737 crash landing at Sabiha Gokcen in Turkey.

Am so glad they were able to check the damage before flying off to another airport, NOT, why risk loosing the AC in route I wonder. Seems some of these outfits don't really have good controls over how they operate.

Per article from Boeing, most tail strikes occur during landing, not take-off. Pilot error is a likely cause. However, since this was a freighter, load shift has to be considered.
