Saudi Political Analyst Dahham Al-'Anzi: KSA Has Obtained Nuclear Bomb. Test May Be Held Soon

Saudi political analyst Dahham Al-‘Anzi spoke on Russia Today Arabic TV channel on February 15 and claimed that Saudi Arabia has obtained a nuclear bomb. Al-‘Anzi said that the Saudis have acquired the bomb two years ago and that a nuclear test is expected soon. “The superpowers know about this,” he added.

Dahham Al-'Anzi: My dear brother, the Syrian people is being killed and slaughtered. They demand the removal of this president, against whom they rebelled. There are U.N. Security Council resolutions in this regard, okay? The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is acting like a responsible country. Therefore, the Saudi leadership, represented by the Ministry of Defense, took steps to minimize the Iranian threat in Yemen, and it has now turned to minimize the Iranian threat in the Levant and Syria. Russia wants to support Bashar al-Assad - one man and the group of regime loyalists around him - while the Syrian people is being slaughtered. No! The Saudi army will not stand idly by. This army represents us Saudis. Why are we buying all those missiles and airplanes? We have had a nuclear bomb for over two years now. A nuclear test may be held within weeks. Why are we obtaining all these weapons, if not for the defense of Arab and Muslim rights? My dear brother, Saudi Arabia does not wish to engage in war…

Host: So Saudi Arabia has obtained a nuclear bomb now?

Dahham Al-'Anzi: Yes, we have a nuclear bomb. To put it simply, yes.

Host: This is breaking news. I’m hearing this for the first time.

Dahham Al-'Anzi: Sir, this is not breaking news. The superpowers know about this. We said before that if Iran were to impudently announce a nuclear test, Saudi Arabia would announce one too. No problem.
