Saudi Military Shakeup Linked to Failed Yemen Drive

A lawmaker said the recent reshuffle of military top brass by Saudi King Salman indicates that Riyadh is trying to cover up its mistakes in the ongoing war against Yemen by laying the blame on the ousted generals.  
Kamal Dehqani, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said, “The Saudi war against defenseless Yemeni people, in which it has flouted all international laws, has led to a chorus of protests—even from the kingdom’s European allies.”
“The Saudi king ousted his generals so that he could blame them for the failures of the war,” Dehqani said in a recent interview with ISNA.
Saudi Arabia replaced the leadership of the kingdom’s military and internal security services.
