Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, disclosed that Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammad bin Salman has played a bigger role than earlier thought in the recent military coup in Turkey.
Bin Salman has taken control of MBC and al-Arabiya news channels and created a joint media operations room between al-Arabiya and the Arabic section of Skynews to pave the ground for the Turkey coup, Mujtahid wrote on his twitter page.
Bin Salman also had a collaborator, Mohammad bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, he added.
Bin Zayed informed Bin Salman that he had relations with Pennsylvania-based opposition figure, Fethullah Gulen, accused by the Turkish government of involvement in botched coup in the country, and has coordinated with him to overthrow Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government and convinced Bin Salman that the coup will certainly succeed, Mujtahid wrote.
According to Mujtahid, Gulen received over $200mln from the UAE to launch the coup, he added.
