Salman, warned of widening gaps in the Al Saud family, and underlined

“Differences are emerging in the Saudi power circle and Prince Talal
has warned of emerging gaps by saying that King Salman is incapable of
administering the country,” a source close to Prince Talal told the
Arabic-language Al-Manar TV.
The source said Prince Talal believes that “Saudi Defense Minister

“The differences have intensified in the Al Saud dynasty over the
Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen,” Senior member of Ansarullah movement
Hossein al-Ezzi told FNA.
Al-Ezzi noted that several regions of Saudi Arabia have been the scene

intimidating some Saudi rulers that the war on Yemen might lead to
chaos at home.
He also pointed to the widening rift among the Saudi-led coalition
members, and said, “The Pakistani parliament voted no to the military
interference in Yemen and Turkey also refrained from joining the
coalition while there are also strong opposition in Egypt against
Egyptian president’s stance vis-à-vis Yemen.”
