Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has reportedly backed an Israeli “scheme” to overthrow Jordanian King Abdullah II in exchange for the guardianship of al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds.

Press TV: Lebanon’s Al Akhbar newspaper, quoting a Jordanian security official, said in a report on Tuesday that the coup attempt against King Abdullah II was a “scheme” involving Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.

The Beirut-based daily said the Saudi crown prince had agreed to support the Israeli plot in return for the transfer of the guardianship over the holy sites in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds from Jordan to Saudi Arabia.

According to the unnamed official, Israel planned the coup against the Jordanian king over Amman’s opposition to the so-called US deal of the century, which allows the Tel Aviv regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley.

The source said bin Salman, with US approval, had authorized the Saudi royal court to make the necessary preparations for the transfer of power at the family level, and had tasked former Fatah leader Muhammad Dahlan with mobilizing Palestinians in Jordan and local tribes.

According to the report, Saudi Arabia armed some southern tribes, issuing them citizenship in return for carrying out military actions if necessary.

In the meantime, the unnamed official referred to the plot as “large and complicated” and underlined that the coup involved many parties but the Jordanian King had succeeded in foiling it.

“The king’s vigilance and the rapid movement of the military and security forces have thwarted the coup’s attempt to remove him and replace him with his brother Prince Hamzah bin Hussein,” the official added.

Jordan announced earlier in the month that it has arrested a number of high-profile figures on charges of hatching an alleged plot against King Abdullah II.

According to reports, a long-time confidante of King Abdullah II and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, a member of the royal family, have been arrested, while Prince Hamzah bin Hussein, a former crown prince and the king’s half-brother, has been put under house arrest.

King Abdullah II has ruled Jordan since the 1999 death of his father, King Hussein, who ruled the country for close to half a century. King Abdullah II removed Prince Hamzah as heir to the throne in 2004.

Jordan’s economy has been battered by the coronavirus pandemic. With a population of around 10 million, the country also hosts more than 600,000 Syrian refugees.

  1. This is an hypothesis, mostly based on documented facts, to explain the Previously Ambiguous Relationship between Saudi Arabia and The Entity Known As The State of “Israel”, but now showing Clarity through the alliance of KSA, Qatar, Muslim Brotherhood, NATO, et alia. ISIS is the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service. “By Deception, We Shall Make War”.

  2. This is somewhat speculative, but I recall reading about this. THEY (Brandeis, “Colonel” House, Federal Reserve/IRS Creating/Colleague’s Wife Shagging/Blackmailed/Indebted to Bankers Puppet Woodrow Wilson et al) fell out with T. E. Lawrence at Versailles. Lawrence realised that he had been used as a Patsie to inveigle Arab support against the Ottomans during WW1 and make promises to others, not the House of Saud. A controversial assertion has been made that the House of Saud was a Dönmeh Entity that emigrated from Baghdad, originally dating from 1666 when the “Messiah” Sabbatai Zvi, “Converted” to Islam and his followers infiltrated the Ottomans/Islam to this very day, especially through entities like the Muslim Brotherhood/Wahhabism/Salafism. The House of Hussein had a more authentic claim to Rulership/Stewardship of the Holy Black Cube at Mecca, as well as the Oil Fields that were grouped in the very East of the “Kingdom” artificially carved out of a desert. The Carve Up of the Ottoman Empire was in similar fashion to the Partition of Africa around 1890. The MI6 people, Naval Intelligence that needed that oil to bunker the empire Dominating Cruisers around the Suez Canal, side-tracked them to Jordan, Syria and Iraq, later overthrown through the Ba’athist Revolt after 1958, except in Jordan.

  3. “Locals said they heard an explosion and saw a mushroom cloud at the weapons manufacturing facility, which is located in the central city of Ramla and produces rocket and missile systems used by the Israeli military.”

    Locals are illegal settlers. But Bibi has work to do today. His work typically entails playing the victim which will put him right at the center of Natanz.
    Lol.

  4. Who is surprised that the Israelis were likely involved? Nearly every every political change in the ME has Israeli footprints. Hopefully, this will spur Jordan to re-evaluate their positions. Of course, Israel, through the US, will continue to pressure Abdullah. But Abdullah has his people to take into consideration as well to keep the country stable. Seems that Israel’s plans for a pan-Arabian pact is having issues with Abdullah and his decisions of late. One can only hope. In other news, seems that there has been a ‘boom’ in an Israeli weapons testing factory…https://southfront.org/large-explosion-at-sensitive-israeli-defense-factory/ Too bad they weren’t working on a mini nuke.
