Saudi Prince and former top commander of Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen, Fahd Bin Turki Bin Abdulaziz, has allegedly undergone a military trial in Saudi Arabia where he was sentenced to death for plotting a coup attempt to oust Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his son Mohammed Bin Salam (MBS), the Institute for Gulf Affairs reported.
Prince Fahd Bin Turki is one of King Slaman’s nephews as he was a well known military figure during the Saudi war in Yemen. He joined the Saudi army back in 1983.
According to the Prince’s relative, the trial was secretly held as the ex-commander was accused of plotting a coup against the royal family in the Kingdom. The source also confirmed receiving a text message from an ex-senior official in Saudi Arabia, confirming the charges of “treason” and the death sentence.
