Saudi Arabia Executes Three Of Its Soldiers Convicted Of ‘High Treason’

On April 10, the Ministry of Defense of Saudi Arabia announced that three of its soldiers were executed after being convicted of committing “high treason”.

In a brief statement, the ministry said that the three soldiers had collaborated with an “enemy” and acted against the interests of the Kingdom.

“The three soldiers were convicted of high treason following the investigation which uncovered their collaboration with the enemy over plots against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s military interests, security and stability, adding that the convicted soldiers had been referred to the specialized court with all judicial guarantees essential for fair trial, the rule of law and the proper administration of justice,” the Saudi Press Agency quoted the statement as saying.

The three soldiers were identified as Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Yahya Akam, Shaher bin Isa bin Qasim Haqqawi, and Hamoud bin Ibrahim bin Ali Hazmi

The Ministry of Defense said it “denounced the heinous crime,” adding that “it is alien to its members and the country’s values.”

Saudi Arabia didn’t provide any further details on the case. The soldiers may have been spying for Iran or even for the Yemeni Houthis (Ansar Allah), the main foes of the Kingdom. Riyadh have been working against Tehran interests in the Middle East for quite a long time. For the last five years, the Saudi militants have been waging a war on Yemen.

The public announcement of the execution is likely meant as a warning to service members in the Saudi military. More information about the rare case may surface soon.

This is the kind of regime that the U.S “supports”

Jens Holm

Iran has world records in executing people as well as killed in car accidents.

Jihadi Colin

Care to provide independently verified figures?

Frank

Don’t encourage trolls. The real issue is that the Wahhabi regimes from Jordan to Saudis are falling apart with internal tribal dissent and mutinies. The real number of Saudi officers executed since the retarded MBS launched this disastrous war on Yemen is much higher, including getting rid of Riyadh Ron Assiri who was their “spokesman” and also implicated in Khashoggi headchopping.

US executes more people than anyone else, mostly poor, blacks and other minorities.

Frank

Frankly speaking as always, these were not “soldiers” but senior officers in the Saudi airforce who had passed in precise locations and refueling timing of the jets parked in hangers that were hit with 100% accuracy by Ansarallah loitering munitions. The damage to the Saudi cowardly idiots airforce has been so severe that they have not been able to fly a single sortie for “retaliation” against Yemeni women and children. The mercenary pilots are now afraid to fly as drones with NOE tech come in whenever they please. The fires are still burning at “king Khaled” airbase.

Mutiny in Saudi military?

Al Gathafi Did Nothing Wrong™

If Western Zioanglonazi countries stopped supporting militarily Saudi Barbaria then the Houthis could reach Riyadh in two months and free it.

“Ukraine’s Top Commander Invokes NATO’s Article 5 Military Assistance Clause as West Continues to Oversee Ukraine’s War in the Donbass -”

stop posting OBVIOUS bs……. ukraine CANNOT invoke article 5……………..it is not a member in nato…………. as example, turkey could.

” ukraine CANNOT invoke article 5……………..it is not a member in nato…………. as example, turkey could. ”

Of course tha’ts mentioned in the article, but you obviously failed to read it. Yet you chose to comment anyway. I like your posts but this wasnt your best work.

Erdogan is calling for rapid Ukrainian membership at a special NATO meeting. It is too late for Russia and the dumb Putin.

Jihadi Colin

Whither it can or can’t, and it can’t, it still did.

Garga

At least it won’t come in the Russia’s western front in the near future. They are back-pedaling as fast as they can.
Ukraine’s armed forces CiF says “liberation” of break-away republics won’t happen militarily, because they are so in love with human life and unicorn farts and a war costs the lives of the people they intended to murder and it’s unacceptable for Ukraine!!

Zelenski too calls for truce in Donbass.

Of course perusing peace is not in the DNA of the Empire and their lapdogs. They clearly didn’t expect Russia moving so quick and giving warning the way they did.

The question remains: Why did they start beating on the war drums in the first place?
Maybe they didn’t intend to start a war there in the first place and it’s all smokes and mirrors to deflect attention from somewhere else.
Or Russia’s response scared the warmongers and helped the cooler heads to prevail.

Personally I go with the first explanation.

Fog of War

All these world machinations go way beyond Russia, Israhell, or ZioAmerica. There are greater forces at work here.

Garga

I’d appreciate if you elaborate on these forces. I can’t understand anything from your very vague mention of “greater forces”. What are these forces?

I just hope it doesn’t involve space lizards, grey aliens and inter-dimensional beings. It’s RicharD’s specialty and he’ll kick your behind if you poke your nose in his domain! ;)

Fog of War

This is not the type of place for those discussions. However, i will say that if you think current and past events are all about money, resources, or some ego driven ” jousting ” you would be greatly mistaken.

Ivan Freely

Damn it Fog. Less vagueness.

Fog of War

I cant on that topic. Most would not be able to understand anyhow.

Ivan Freely

OR, it’s RicharD’s second account. You never know. ;)

Different writing styles my friend.

Ha ha. Muhammed is building and Ark well assiscomment image ted by some Jews with umbrellas.

Erdogan wants “expedited” Ukrainian membership of NATO and has said that Turkey “will defend Ukraine against Russian aggression”. So much for the idiot Putin selling the Turks the S-400.

Fog of War

If that happens Pootina can keep the Donbass as it is game over anyhow.

Frank

Frankly, the US and its NATO poodles have a wider agenda of carving up Russia, they will not stop at Don Bas. Bill Burns “the Russian expert” at CIA has already called for the liberation of Crimea. Then next will be the Caucasus, where Turkey is training and pushing Jihadis from Ukraine and then Belarus and finally Russia itself. This is 20 year project to destroy Russia.

Ivan Freely

NATO had their chance to destroy Russia back in the 90s. It’s too late now.

Lone Ranger

Wishful thinking.
U.S. lost in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Georgia, Yemen, Ukraine.
All talk no action.
If Russia wanted they could steamroll everything till the german border in 3weeks without breaking a sweat.

Garga

With these cowards it’s always someone else’s fault. There’s high chance that these soldiers didn’t pass any information to any foreign government, but simply expressed their concerns and opposition or took pics/vidoes of Saudi failures.

Something is seriously disrupting transportation in Arabia. First it was Riyadh and Jaddah airports, now they closed Jaddah port because of “winds”. Yes, freaking winds!!!

An American manned recon plane (from Erbil airport) is circling above al-BuKamal. Something is going on. I hope the resistance is vigilant.

Liberal guy

What u hv said is exactly the truth

Jens Holm

I think You know none of that. Its assumptions.

SnowCatzor

That or they probably just went AWOL, because fuck dying in the Yemen quagmire.

Frank

The Yemeni drones knocked Saudi C3I at king Khaled HQ. The US is now running AWACS patrols but the drones are using NOE GPS and an Indian taxi driver in Riyadh described that the drones came so low that they almost knocked out his roof sign. Now the loitering munitions are coming in swarms.

One day the entire royal family will meet this same fate.

Kingdom is anathema to Islam, the Kingdom of Islam is a reference to Prophet Abraham’s Kingdom conferred by the Book of Wisdom (Holy Qur’an).

All Saudi king’s are Jew maggots kept in power by Britain, France and the US.

Saudi military is always a threat that has to be continually reminded of Saudi Security Apparatus superiority empowered by Israel, which is the employer of mercenaries supporting the Saudi Kingdom.

Jens Holm

So what ??? Is it because You want to be King or Queen Yourself ???

Fog of War

Hypocritical irony.

The executions will continue until morale improves.

Just Me

Or half the Bedouins are dead. The Saudi regime of morons looks very weak in front of their own illiterate population who are now wondering what happened to the trillions spent on useless overpriced western weapons, when their pathetic military can not even defend their own capital and most of the al Saud cowards have fled to Europe and US.

NirKon

Saudi Arabia should just send in “camel swarms” into Yemen as retaliation packed with 250 kg bombs strapped to them. This technology is more in line with their mental aptitude.

FlorianGeyer

The many Saudi Royals could be employed as suicide bombers. :)

Jihadi Colin

Probably just scapegoats to explain away the endless Barbarian headchopper regime defeats in Yemen.

The Khazar project in Palestine is unsustainable, a new ICC report investigating Zionist war crimes against civilians has given quite interesting demographics, 7 million “Jews” and 5.5 million Arab inhabitants in Occupied Palestine. If you remove the recent 2 million fake Jews from Russia and Ukraine, then Pisrael is kaput. In anycase, it a matter of a fey years, just like the Apartheid regime disappeared in South Africa. The Zionists are tamam shod, fini, Khalas, DONE!.
