The Saudi tweeter Mojtahed revealed that the deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammad bin Salman is seriously considering the idea of take control of the confidential item in the fight against terrorism, which has been completely under the control of the Crown Prince and Interior Minister Mohammad bin Nayef for the last ten years.
Mojtahed explained that “this item, which is listed out of the budget, costs a daily 50 million Saudi Riyals and another $10 million outside of the kingdom, i.e. a total cost of 87.5 million riyals daily.”
“Bin Nayef enjoys the right to dispose an annual total of 32 billion riyals a year in confidential items of the Royal Court that are not subjected to any follow-up,” the Saudi tweeter said.
“After the announcement of the Islamic Military Alliance against terrorism, no one can rule out that Bin Salman could issue a royal order making this item at his disposal, hitting Bin Nayef a severe blow,” he added.
