Stuck in Yemen War Quagmire, Saudi Regime Sacks Top Military Chiefs

Alwaght- The Saudi regime has fired its top military commanders overnight on Tuesday while the kingdom is stuck in Yemen's war quagmire.

Those dismissed by royal decree issued by King Salman included the Saudi army's chief of staff, and the heads of the ground and air defense forces.

First Lieutenant General Fayyad bin Hamed al-Ruwayli was appointed the new chief of staff, while Tamadur bint Youssef al-Ramah was appointed as deputy labour minister in a rare senior post for a woman in the kingdom.

Prince Turki bin Talal - the brother of Alwaleed bin Talal - a billionaire businessman who was detained for months by the government on allegations of corruption - was also appointed to a deputy governor position.

No official reason has been given for the overhaul, but it comes as Saudi Arabia is stuck in the Yemen war quagmire after launching an illegal aggression on the impoverished state.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against Yemenis in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. However, the regime in Riyadh has failed to achieve all its objectives while it faces criticism of perpetrating war crimes in its brutal bombardments of Yemeni civilians.
