Saudi Arabia’s King to 'stand down and hand power to son after purging' rivals

KING Salman is reportedly preparing to make his son Prince Mohammed bin Salman the ruler of Saudi Arabia in a shock move following a corruption purge, reports claim.

Saudi expert James Dorsey, a senior fellow at Singapore's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said: "The most recent crackdown breaks with the tradition of consensus within the ruling family whose secretive inner workings are equivalent to those of the Kremlin at the time of the Soviet Union.

"Prince Mohammed, rather than forging alliances, is extending his iron grip to the ruling family, the military, and the National Guard to counter what appears to be more widespread opposition within the family as well as the military to his reforms and the Yemen war.”

The news comes after the US promised to aid Saudi Arabia in neutralising “Iran’s destabilising influence” and battle extremism in the Middle East, the Pentagon has announced.

The statement backed defence links between the allies following Saudi Arabia’s decision to blockade Yemen’s ports to stop weapons coming in from Iran.

Marine Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway said: “We continue to maintain strong defence ties with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and work together on common security priorities to include combat operations against violent extremist organisations, and neutralising Iran’s destabilising influence in the Middle East region.”

A coalition led by Saudi Arabia have closed all ground, air and sea access to Yemen following a rocket attack on Riyadh.
