, the former Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Turki Al-Faisal, said that "Iran's response to the assassination of the Quds Force Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, was a play."
Al-Faisal added, in an interview with the Kuwaiti newspaper "Al-Qabas": "When the United States takes a decision to deal with such a personality and the way it has dealt with, it is of course a manifestation of this great media momentum," stressing that "the Iranian response to the killing of Soleimani is a play."
He explained: "They claimed that they had responded the appropriate response to the United States, but what the world saw from pictures and missiles is that some of them fell inside Iran, some in the desert inside Iraq, and what reached the camp where the American forces are located."
Al-Faisal added that the Iranians "previously informed the Iraqi government of this bombing, with the intention of reporting the American side, so that there were no American casualties." And he added, "Despite the Iranian rashness and talk about the killing of 80 Americans and the destruction of facilities, they returned and admitted that this did not happen, it is A play without a doubt. "
He continued: "The leadership in Iran is not ashamed, and the eloquent Arab proverb says:" If you are not ashamed, do whatever you want. They do and then try to highlight what they want from this act. ”
The Saudi Prince, who talks about the end of the proxy war between the United States and Iran, called for waiting until they know how the Iranians will behave, and he explained:“ They are deciding what they do not announce, and there could be consequences. When it happened, we saw two days ago a random bombing of an American headquarters in Iraq, who was behind this bombing? God knows. Perhaps there will be other accidents that could happen elsewhere. "
In this context, the former Saudi intelligence chief indicated that the Iranian leadership relied on "agents", saying: "Iran has become a paper tiger with steel claws, and these steel claws that Iran uses are its agents in Hezbollah, be it in Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, or Turkey." Or in Pakistan and Afghanistan, these are the ones who are charged by the Iranian leadership to carry out the proxy war on their behalf. "
He continued: "And we do not forget the attempt to assassinate the late Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Jaber, may God have mercy on him, during the Iran-Iraq war, and then hijacked the Jabriya plane and other events, such as the Khobar bombings, we have in the Kingdom, which was at the hands of Hezbollah in the Hijaz, and in Turkey A Saudi diplomat was assassinated in the 1980s by Hezbollah in Turkey. "
Prince Turki expressed his regret that the Iranian leadership succeeded and excelled in attracting Shiite communities in different parts of the world. It comes from Iran, as these are the agencies that Iran uses to serve its purposes. "
The United States of America announced, on January 3, that the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, was killed in a drone attack, while Iran described the attack as "state terrorism" and vowed revenge.
On January 8, Iran launched a missile attack on two military bases in Iraq, including the Ain al-Assad base, which includes about 1,500 US soldiers. Ended A / 29
