Western Diplomatic Sources: Saudi Leaders Split over Yemen War
The Saudi rulers whose differences have been widely reported in the world media in recent months, are now at loggerheads over the war in Yemen, a western diplomat said.
“Such differences have now entangled them with the decision about ending or continuing war against Yemen,” a western diplomat revealed, referring to the widening gaps between the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif bin Abdulaziz and his Deputy Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud.
In response to the question how long Saudi Arabia will continue its war against Yemen, he said, “Which group in Saudi Arabia are you talking about? Are you talking about Mohammad bin Salman who is after continued war and finds capability in himself to annihilate the Houthis? Or Mohammad bin Naif who is a moderate person and views continued war as an opportunity to further grow terrorism?”
His remarks came after a Russian political analysis website said the monarchy in Saudi Arabia might come to an end in the coming years if it keeps on attacking the neighboring Yemen and its adventurism in the region.
”The collapse may well happen in the next 2 to 3 years, if the Al Saud continues its military adventures and also continues to be rude to Iran, Iraq and Yemen,” the Iran.ru analytical website wrote.
It said that although there has recently been a change in the Saudi leadership, where leadership positions were the representatives of the younger generation, and, in theory, the kingdom was to embark on the path of reform and modernization,
Riyadh continues direct interference in the internal affairs of the neighboring countries, including the use of military and terrorist methods.
The Russian website noted that the Saudi regime is a forged and illegitimate regime, and said, “Saudi Arabia has been created artificially from different religious and ethnic groups, and the Al Saud government only tries to maintain a complex balance of interests among tribal heads.”
Also in June, sources in Saudi Arabia revealed that a group of princes have worked out a plan to stand up to King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef.
Jamal Bin, a prominent Saudi activist who writes about the events within the Saudi monarchy on his tweeter page, disclosed concerted efforts by a number of Saudi princes, including Tallal, Ahmed and Mota’b, to take an immediate and integrated position against the events happening in Saudi Arabia.
According to him, the Saudi princes are seeking to save their country from the adventurism of Mohammed bin Nayef and his deputy Mohammed bin Salman who are named by Jamal Bin as “teenagers who have perpetrated a coup”.
His remarks came after a source said in May that Saudi king’s younger half-brother Muqrin bin Abdulaziz is under house arrest after being relieved of his duties as crown prince.
Asa’ad Omabiya Abu Qalilah, an independent Libyan journalist and writer who has links within the Saudi monarchy, said that Muqrin cannot visit anyone or receive any guests at his palace.
On April 29, King Salman relieved Muqrin of his duties as crown prince and appointed his nephew, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, as the new heir apparent.
It is the first time that a grandson of the founder of the country (Ibn Saud), rather than a son, has been appointed crown prince.
Mohamed bin Nayef, 55, the grandson of the founder of Saudi Arabia, was appointed as crown prince and also minister of interior.
Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was also replaced by Saudi Ambassador to Washington Adel al-Jubair.
The changes signaled a major shift at the top of the ruling Al Saud family away from princes chosen by the late King Abdullah, who died in January, and towards those close to the new monarch.
Earlier reports from inside the Saudi family said that Muqrin was bribed by King Salman bin Abdulaziz to be relieved of his duties as crown prince to push his son up the ladder to be the next king.
Mujtahid, a Saudi political activist who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, said in his latest tweets that the king’s son, Muhammad bin Salman who is trying to become the next king, has proposed to pay a $10 billion sum to Muqrin.
Meantime, Muhammad bin Salman has opened hundreds of Twitter accounts and recruited many employees to publicize for him in their accounts.
Also in June, Syrian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Jihad al-Laham described Saudi Arabia as the Muslim world’s biggest enemy, and said Wahhabism is spreading extremism and terrorism in the region.
“The Saudi Wahhabi thoughts have spread extremist and terrorist groups in the region,” Laham said in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Ali Larijani in Tehran.
Hundreds of Saudi-Led Troops Come Under Siege in Eastern Yemen
The Yemeni army and popular forces have laid siege on a large number of Saudi and Emirati forces in Jawf province, Eastern Yemen, the country’s defense ministry announced on Saturday.
Hundreds of Saudi and UAE military men are now surrounded by the Yemeni forces in the town of al-Jabal al-Aswad in al-Jawf province.
The Yemeni forces captured 130 military troops from the Saudi-led coalition, including at least 39 Emirati soldiers and 9 officers during a series of clashes in Jawf province yesterday.
Several Yemeni civilians have lost their lives over the past three days as Saudi warplanes continue to pound areas across Yemen.
On Wednesday, leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik al-Houthi lashed out at Saudi Arabia, saying the kingdom’s policies are the same as those of the US and Israel, “which seek to crush the Muslim Ummah without paying any price.”
Yemeni Forces Gain Full Control over Strategic Heights in Ma’rib
The Yemeni forces allied with the popular forces pounded the Saudi-led troops with massive fire power, and took full control over a strategic region in Ma’rib province.
The Yemeni army and popular forces took control over Jabal (Mount) Salab in al-Jedan region back from the Saudi aggressors.
Meantime, the Saudi-led forces are reportedly pinned down under the heavy artillery fire of Yemen’s popular and army troops in al-Hajr district, Majzr region.
In a relevant development on Friday, the Yemeni army forces, backed by allied Popular Committees loyal to Ansarullah movement, killed a Saudi prince during an attack in the oil-rich province of Ma’rib in central Yemen.
Amir Mohammad bin Mosa’ed bin Jalawi, an assistant inspector general, and his comrades were killed when Yemeni forces targeted them in the al-Hajar region, Sa’ada Press news website reported on Friday.
This came a day after Houthi Ansarullah fighter killed several mercenaries fighting on Saudi Arabia’s behalf and militants loyal to Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the same region.
