Prince Ali has been officially sent to retirement from the Jordanian armed forces after 23 years of service. He published a thank you letter addressed to his JAF colleages:

He is too young to retire IMO. Isn`t he?

I would not say he's too young, but yes, but with his age he could continue exercising. I do not speak Arabic, so I do not understand the statement. Did he give any reason about his retirement?

He did not give any reason for this decision. In his letter, Prince Ali stated that he had been informed of his retirement from the Jordanian Armed Forces, which means that he did not seek to leave the army. He talked proudly about his service with the Special Forces & later with the royal guards following the death of his father the late King Hussein. He also expressed thanks to his comrades and JAF for the invaluable experience he had gained throughout military service.

At the end of the letter, the prince pledged to remain loyal to Army and to his brother King Abdullah II, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.

Sounds as if it wasn't voluntary. Any idea what might be behind this move?

Yes, true. Both prince Feisal Bin Al Hussein & Prince Talal Bin Mohammad were referred to retirement along with prince Ali. The Jordanian press published this morning the letters sent by king Abdullah II to each of them.

King sends letters to princes Feisal, Ali, Talal after retirement from army

AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday voiced his gratitude for Their Royal Highnesses Prince Feisal, Prince Ali and Prince Talal for their distinguished military services in three letters after they were referred to retirement from the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF).

Very very interesting.

I wonder what was/is the motive behind the move.

What is happening in Jordan? Ali and Feisal removed from the army and Hamzah with a new role (I do not know exactly which). Everything has been without warning. Very strange that Ali did not even see his retirement coming. What do you think?

No mention of coup, but they have apparently really been dismissed:

All are unreliable sources .As usual, It is just a rumor circulated by Syrian and Israeli media.
According to Petra`s article, the three princes were referred to retirement along with other high ranked officers in response to the JAF restructuring and development process that was previously ordered by King Abdullah II himself.
Personally, I do not think the reason behind this movement was a coup attempt because the three princes - Feisal, Ali and Talal- are known for their loyalty to King Abdullah II. Also, Unlike Saudi Arabia, the issue of inheriting the throne in Jordan was settled years ago in favor of Prince Hussein, the eldest son of the king.ِ
Regarding prince Hamzah, I cant find any reliable source to confirm his appointment as adviser to the JAF Chief of Staff as reported by some news websites. Perhaps it is just a rumor too.

If true, the developments are not surprising. One can be sure that King Abdullah has solid evidence for dismissing his brothers.

I have never accepted King Abdullah and his clothing horse, Rania.

For decades Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath have servee the Hashemite Kingdom as the crown princely couple. They did it with seriousness, with zest, and have build and enormous network, not only amongst the royal families but also with the who-is-who in the world.

Suddenly a dying King Hussein appoints the "unknown" and unexperienced and without network Abdullah as his Heir. Pfffft. I have never taken Abdullah and his photomodel as serious as Hassan and Sarvath.

i think because the tree Princes didn't appear in public since there retirement from the army there will be all sorts of remours now..
A senior Jordanian official said today there is no sush thing:no arrestation,no complot,nothing...so yet we should stick with the official version until we got something solid
