Two senior members of the Saudi royal family – a brother of King Salman, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al Saud, as well as the king’s nephew, former Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz al Saud – have been detained over suspicions of treason, media reported.

According to The Wall Street Journal, both members of the royal family were detained on Friday by royal court guards, who were wearing masks and dressed in black.

The guards also detained one of the brothers of Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz al Saud.

Further details of the detentions remain unknown.

Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz al Saud was crown prince from 2015 to 2017, but King Salman changed his successor in 2017, naming Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud the new crown prince.

Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al Saud, king Salman’s only one alive brother who is actual heir of the Saudi crown after king Salman. Whereas the worst king Salman informally selected his son MBS who’s most junior member of Saudi royal family and quietly incompetent to run on the kingdom crown. Surely his detainee is a conspiracy done by MBS to hold his informal crown ship.

Not a surprise for me. There might be some other well known names to end detained soon up or later. They’re obviously into purging all those with ties with shitlamists/extremists.
MBS will send all these critters to their 72 virgins after a layover at chop-chop square. He’s closely following MBZ’s advice : “If you want to become king, you need to get rid of the extremists”
