Since the declaration of Saudi Arabia’s appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman as heir to the throne and deputy prime minister, Iranian media have witnessed a state of flux.

Bultan News, which is linked to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), reflected this state of fear prevailing inside Iran in a report that describes the Saudi Prince who prefers military options in solving the issues he is facing.

The move has risen concern among Iranian leaders as Prince bin Salman, since assuming his previous post, has taken bold steps to confront Iran, observers told the Baghdad Post.

On may 3, prince Mohammed bin Salman, ruled out any rapprochement with arch-rival Iran.

Saudi Arabia relieved on Wednesday Muhammad bin Nayef from his role as crown prince, replacing him with Mohammad bin Salman. He was also appointed deputy prime minister while maintain his post as the kingdom's defense minister.
