The American Washington Post compared the facts of the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the attempts to assassinate the former intelligence official Saad al-Jabri at the hands of close to Prince Mohammed bin Salman, noting that the kingdom is led by a crown prince who heads the death squads.
Under the headline "Crown Prince of the Saudi Death Squads," the editorial board of the Washington Post considered in its editorial that Al-Jabri's lawsuit filed in Washington, DC against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bears suspicious resemblance to Khashoggi's assassination.
The editorial continued that the Khashoggi case is a case of deception and murder with impunity. The body of Khashoggi, who was killed in his country's consulate in Istanbul at the hands of elements close to Mohammed bin Salman, was not found, noting that the new chapter that is coming now is chilling out of the alleged Saudi treachery, Who must be reminded once again that the kingdom is led by a ruthless tyrant.
The newspaper concluded that if the allegations of Al-Jabri's case are proven, it strengthens the conclusion that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is led by a crown prince who heads death squads, and continues to evade accountability for the murder.
Al-Jabri, who was an advisor to the former Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, filed a lawsuit in Washington against Mohammed bin Salman, accusing him of sending a team to assassinate him in America and Canada in pursuit of important recordings.
The invitation accuses the Saudi crown prince of forming a team to arrange the killing of Al-Jabri from 3 people, they are Badr Al-Asaker, Saud Al-Qahtani and Ahmed Al-Asiri, all of whom are senior aides to bin Salman.
The invitation confirms that bin Salman sent a team to assassinate Al-Jabri during his stay in Boston in 2017, and that he tried for months to deploy secret agents in the United States in an attempt to track down the whereabouts of the former officer.
After those efforts failed, the Saudi crown prince sent another team to assassinate Al-Jabri in Canada, two weeks after the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.
