Riyadh: The King of Saudi Arabia, King Salman bin AbdulAziz, is expected to undergo treatment for a lung infection, the Saudi Royal Court has disclosed in a statement.

According to the statement, the 88-year-old underwent medical examinations that were conducted in the royal clinics at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah.

“It was found that there was a lung infection, and the medical team decided that the King—may Allah protect him—should undergo a treatment programme consisting of antibiotics until the inflammation goes away, Allah willing.” The royal court stated this on Sunday.

The custodian of the two holy mosques was earlier reported to have suffered from fever and joint pains, prompting the necessary medical tests to be conducted.

In July 2020, King Salman successfully underwent surgery to remove his gallbladder after an infection leading to inflammation.

In March 2022, he was hospitalised to change the battery of his pacemaker at a Riyadh hospital.

King Salman was proclaimed the seventh King of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on January 23, 2015, upon the death of the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.

Prior to ascending the throne, he was the crown prince and deputy prime minister for more than two and a half years, since June 2012.

He had served as the governor of the central Riyadh region for almost five decades and as Defence Minister. 

His son, Mohammed bin Salman, was named crown prince in 2017 and is generally seen as the country’s de facto ruler.
