Lebanese journalist Marwa Osman gives the best analyses and insights I’ve gotten so far into the shocking recent developments in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon.
Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri was ordered to fly from his country to Riyadh and to announce his resignation, which has not been accepted by the Lebanese government.
We learn that there is a connection between Hariri’s forced resignation and the shooting death of Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd while the latter resisted arrest. The two had been very close friends since childhood and investment partners in recent times.
Like his cousin, Prince Muqrin whose helicopter was shot down by a Saudi warplane as he attempted escape to Yemen, Fahd represented the wing of the Saudi royal family who are opposed to Mohammed bin Salman’s power grab.
