Saudi Arabia in a state of flux (2)

+

On May 10, 2013, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia relieved General Mohamed al-Ayech of his duties as Chief of Staff of the Saudi Armed Forces.

No explanation has been given for this action, any more than for the dismissal of Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khaled bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, on April 20.

In his place, the king appointed General Fayadh Ben Hamed al-Rowaili.
