Mustafa Abu Sneineh — The Saudi death squad MBS uses to silence dissent

MEE exclusively reveals details about the Tiger Squad, a team of assassins targeting Saudi critics at home and abroad....
In new revelations, a Saudi source with intimate knowledge of his country's intelligence services told Middle East Eye about a death squad that operates under the guidance and supervision of Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince.
