Saudi King Sacks Chief Of Staff In Major Shake-Up


Saudi King Salman has sacked the military chief of staff and a host of other top commanders, the country's state media said Monday, in a major shake-up of the defence establishment.

The monarch also replaced the heads of the ground forces and air defences, as well as senior officials at the interior ministry, in a series of late-night royal decrees.

No official reason was given for the sweeping overhaul, but it comes as the Saudi-led coalition's military intervention in Yemen against Iran-aligned Huthi rebels nears the end of its third year.
