The UAE media on Monday published a picture of Prince Zayed bin Hamdan, son-in-law of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, showing him injured and sitting in a wheelchair.
Southern journalist and political writer Adel al-Hasani revealed confidential information about the injury of Prince Zayed after an Emirati helicopter crashed in Shabwah province with him on board. However, he was quick to dispel rumours about the Emirati prince having participated in any battles or having been injured while fighting in the frontlines.
Al-Hasani said on his Facebook page: “Zayed bin Hamdan, son-in-law of Mohammed bin Zayed by being his daughter’s husband, did not engage in any battle and was not injured in a fight. What happened to them, is that their plane crashed in Shabwah and paralyzed him in the accident.”
The journalist continued: “Foreign companies were protecting them in the headquarters of the coalition. I have seen it myself, in addition to the mercenaries and slaves of the Security Belt and the elite forces who form a security cordon around them. So, stop turning these cartoons into heroes.”
