The Saudi king is retreating to an area in the Red Sea to recover from the gallbladder removal

King Salman of Saudi Arabia has traveled to the city of Neom on the Red Sea to “rest” and recover from the surgery he performed in July to remove his gallbladder, the official SPA news agency shows pictures of the trip.

The 84-year-old monarch was released on July 30th and has chosen an enclave for his recovery where his son and heir Mohamed bin Salman has planned the construction of a new city with all technological advances.

The health of the king, who has ruled Saudi Arabia since 2015, has been a constant source of speculation due to his increasing age. His 34-year-old son would de facto rule the country today, although his image has been called into question according to information linking him to the murder of journalist Yamal Jashogi in Istanbul.
