Saudi King Salman has sacked the military chief of staff and a host of other top commanders 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 Houthi rebels nears the end of its third year.
