    The latest decisions taken by the Saudi royalty in the case of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi have led to a wave of praise and support from various Arab countries and institutions.

    The United Arab Emirates on Saturday supported Riyadh's statement on the case, the official news agency WAM said.

    The Gulf Arab state "commends directives and decisions of Saudi King Salman (bin Abdulaziz) on the issue of Kashoggi," WAM said on Twitter.

    For its part, Bahrain praised directives and decisions of King Salman, stressing that "Saudi Arabia remains a state of justice, principles, and morals."

    Also, Egypt praised what it called the "decisive" and "brave" actions taken by the Saudi King in the investigation into the Khashoggi case.

    "Egypt sees that the brave and decisive decisions and actions taken by the Saudi King over this matter align with his majesty's approach that respects the principles of law and applications of effective justice," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    It also offered its condolences to Khashoggi's family and said it was confident the investigation would reveal the truth.

    Saudi Arabia's highest religious body, the Council of Senior Scholars, said the King's decisions "achieve justice and equality in accordance with Islamic law", according to a statement on state news agency SPA.

    Saudi Arabia has said that Khashoggi died in a fight inside its Istanbul consulate, and dismissed several officials over the incident, including Maj. Gen. Ahmed bin Hassan Assiri and Saud al-Qahtani.

    A statement carried by SPA read: "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Public Prosecution showed that the suspects had traveled to Istanbul to meet with the citizen Jamal Khashoggi as there were indications of the possibility of his returning back to the country.

    "Discussions took place with the citizen Jamal Khashoggi during his presence in the consulate of the kingdom in Istanbul by the suspects (that) did not go as required and developed in a negative way, leading to a fistfight. The brawl led to his death and their attempt to conceal and hide what happened."

    The kingdom expressed its deep regret at "the painful developments that have taken place and stresses the commitment of the authorities in the kingdom to bring the facts to the public opinion, to hold all those involved accountable and bring them to justice."

    Furthermore, King Salman ordered the formation of a ministerial committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to restructure the general intelligence agency.

    Birds of a feather flock together


    Poor @The SC ... The dreams of Neom and the castles built on sand come crumbling down.

    I was actually enthusiastic about MBS reforms. Until this blatant disregard for human Rights by Mr. Bone Saw. America has ordered the dethrone of MBD. The slave must comply.

    Surveillance is important to stop the abuse of power.

    MBS = Mr. Bone Saw

    I am not disputing the fact that everyone spies but the point is not many would publicly admit it. By doing so Turkey has in fact compromised their ability to conduct further spying missions.

    What has Turkey achieved by publicizing this case? Nothing.

    More evidence than that which exists for sunlight.

    It is as clear as daylight:
    1. Hit Men enter turkey
    2. Victim enters embassy
    3. Physical, confirmed and circumstantial evidence of hit men killing victim
    4. Hit men leave turkey right away
    5. Victim Body not found (evidence it's in pieces)
    6. Most hitmen close associates of MBS (Prince of Darkness: Mr. Bone Saw)
    8. One close associate Hit man dies "in car accident" shortly after.
    9. All orders in Saudi state come from top down
    10. Ever changing stories coming from guilty Royals caught with their pants down and hands bloodied.

    Arab leaders are really rimming that Saudi butthole very well!! of course they will support SA, that's expected from countries that consider basic human rights a luxury, an extra accessory that isn't needed....disgusting. RIP to that brave man that didn't get to enjoy the rest of his life with his newly found love. And spit, shit and vomit on all Arab leaders.
