Saudi Arabia says it will execute three soldiers for “treason”

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia executed three soldiers on Saturday for committing “treason,” but does not elaborate on which enemies the kingdom believes it has helped. It was.

The state-owned Saudi Press Agency has identified the man as a soldier working for the Ministry of Defense.

He didn’t elaborate on how men helped the kingdom’s enemies. Saudi Arabia is fighting the Houthi rebels backed by Iran in Yemen. The kingdom also sees Iran as a regional archival.

The kingdom said three men had been convicted in court and later royal orders acted as execution warrants.

According to Amnesty International statistics, Saudi Arabia executed the third largest execution in the world in 2019. The kingdoms followed China and Iran, respectively. In 2019, the kingdom sentenced 184 people to death.
