Syrian political activist: Al Saud kills khashoggi with American provocation

Damascus, Nov 6, IRNA - Syrian political activist Sharif Shahade said Saudi Arabia killed critic journalist Jamal Khashoggi to blackmail the country.

Shahade said in an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Tuesday that the United States was seeking to blackmail Saudi Arabia by entering Khashoggi case.

“Indeed, the United States has received all of Saudi Arabia's criminal records against the journalist from Turkey, and seeks for the new extortion of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman,” he said.

The Syrian political activist said the Saudi relationship with the Zionist regime has been further enhanced by the killing of Khashoggi because the United States, having enough information and exploiting this plot, seeks to reopen the embassies of Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE in the occupied territories.

Shahade added, “Bin Salman has grown with deviant thinking because he has committed many crimes in Yemen and is the prime suspect of killing Khashoggi.”
