CAIRO – 17 June, 2017: Libya’s late President Muammar Gaddafi and Qatar’s Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani schemed to assassinate late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz, Media Studies Center Head and Royal Advisor Saud al-Qahtani posted on Twitter Friday.
Gaddafi insulted Saudi Arabia during the Arab Summit held in Sharm El- Sheikh in 2003; Prince Abdullah severally rebuked him and disclosed the western countries’ role in helping Gaddafi seize power. “Who brought you to the power?” Prince Abdullah asked Gaddafi during the historic Arab Summit, according to al-Arabiya channel’s website.
Al- Qahtani revealed that Gaddafi communicated with Saudi dissidents living in London, but they did not reach an agreement. Gaddafi sought vengeance against Prince Abdullah. He, in cooperation with Hamad bin Khalifa held joint intelligence meetings in Doha along with other Libyan intelligence officers, Qahtani added.
“No Cooperation between Libya and Qatar without the assassination of Prince Abdullah,” Gaddafi’s representative to the joint intelligence meetings in Doha Colonel Mohamed Ismail said.
Al-Qahtani noted that Hamad bin Khalifa directed the Saudi dissidents in London to obey orders of Libya’s colonel Mohamed Ismail. “The Saudi dissidents welcomed the assassination plot. They thought so-called Jihadists would overthrow the Saudi regime,” Al-Qahtani manifested.
Al-Qahtani also indicated that Doha-based al-Jazeera channel was part of the assassination plot. It was promoting al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula.
