Saud al-Qahtani, an advisor at the Royal Court of Saudi Arabia has accused the media of Qatar of trying to twist statements that he had made. The statements, in question, are related to the case of a plot by Qatar and Libya to assassinate the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia a number of years ago.
Qahtani is the General Supervisor of the Center for Studies and Media Affairs at the Royal Court of Saudi Arabia as well. He had revealed this heinous plot back in June 2017 by means of a series of tweets. In those tweets, he stated that the assassination plot was devised by Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the former Emir of Qatar and Muammar Qaddafi, the slain dictator of Libya.
At the time, Muammar Qaddafi had reached out to Saudi dissidents who were living in London. The aim was to take revenge on King Abdullah.
Recently, al-Qahtani stated that the media of Qatar was trying to change his remarks about the plot. He also said that he is hoping for the actual facts to be presented in the Saudi courts soon.
He has stated that the facts are quite clear and they cannot be disputed. Those facts show that those two leaders planned out a shocking plot. The incident was revealed by al-Qahtani among other classified details about Qatar in 2017.
As per al-Qahtani, the origin of the plot can be traced back to 2003. It started during the Arab Summit, which was taking place in Egypt. During this event, Qaddafi attacked King Fahd and Saudi Arabia.
Prince Abdullah, who was then a crown prince, responded strongly and strictly against the Libyan dictator.
This angered Qaddafi who began to look for Saudi dissidents. When those dissidents chose not to engage with him, Qaddafi opted to work with Hamad bin Khalifa, the emir of Qatar.
