Whistle-Blower: S. Arabia on Threshold of Internal Coup

TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, revealed high tensions in Saudi Arabia and said a threat of a coup to topple the king and his son is highly likely.

"Moves in the al-Saud family to oust Salman bin Abdulaziz (the Saudi king) have increased by those who support Ahmed bin Abdulaziz (the king's brother) as they are convincing him of taking the leadership in Saudi Arabia," Mujtahid wrote on his twitter page on Sunday.

He added that the princes who have joined the move intend to issue a statement to declare King Salman's incompetency for continued leadership of the country and nullify his recent order that brought his son to the post of the Crown Prince.

A leading Arab daily had also said in an analysis written by an Israeli expert on Saturday that chances are high that a coup is staged in Saudi Arabia to bring down the new crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, and send him to exile.

"The new crown prince has played an important role in distorting Saudi Arabia's stability since 2015," al-Rai al-Youm quoted Shaul Yanai as saying on Saturday.

Noting that the only power which can invalidate the Saudi king's order to replace the crown prince is the Royal Council, he said the Council can incapacitate the king under the pretext of his poor health conditions and inability to make wise decisions.

"In such conditions, bin Salman will also be dethroned and he might even be sent to exile for a long period of time," Yanai said.
