The will of Sultan Qaboos bin Said after his death

Omani TV issued an urgent statement, on Thursday evening, an urgent statement regarding Sultan Qaboos bin Said and the last will.

In a related context, the Diwan of the Royal Court of Oman issued a statement, published by the official Oman News Agency, in which it said that Sultan Qaboos was in a stable health condition.

In this regard, the Omani Diwan indicated that Sultan Qaboos is currently following the treatment program scheduled for him.

The Omani Diwan, quoted by Sultan Qaboos, said: “May God ask His Majesty to preserve Oman and its loyal sons and to help them towards more progress and development, so that the victorious development process continues to the goals set for it.”

In the recent period, fears increased about the health of the Sultan of Oman after he made a short visit to Belgium for treatment, earlier this December, and the Omani authorities did not announce news of his health after his return.

And Omani users and news accounts in the Sultanate expressed their concern over the health of the country's King Sultan Qaboos bin Saeed, amid a stream of rumors circulating on social networking sites.

The hashtag “Sultan Al Qaboos” has released the social networking site “Twitter” in the Sultanate of Oman, amid posts by users from different groups of Omani society, including news accounts.

Most of the Omanis participating in the hashtag demanded an official explanatory statement, which would dispel their concerns about the reports of the Sultan's health.

Media reports attributed the silence applied in the Sultanate of Oman on the health of "Sultan Qaboos", to differences within the ruling family over the new sultan, especially since "Qaboos" did not leave an heir or name a crown prince.

It should be noted that the Belgian newspaper "De Morgen" reported that the companions of the Sultan of Sultanate of Oman, Sultan Qaboos, decided to return from Belgium to their country, after reports that the Sultan did not respond to treatment.

In 2017, the British newspaper The Economist reported that Sultan Qaboos suffered from unspecified cancer and was rarely seen in public in recent years, except to demonstrate that he was still alive.

It is noteworthy that Sultan Qaboos, seventy-nine years old, is considered an ally of the West and has ruled Oman since he led a "white coup" in 1970 with the help of Britain, the former colonial power of the Sultanate.
