Jamal Khashoggi’s Killing Took Seven Minutes, Turkish Sources Report


It took seven minutes for Jamal Khashoggi to die, a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of the Saudi journalist’s last moments told Middle East Eye.

Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and onto the table of his study next door, the Turkish source said.

Horrendous screams were then heard by a witness downstairs. The screaming stopped when Khashoggi – who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate on 2 October – was injected with an as yet unknown substance.

According to the audio, the Saudi team began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.

  1. And we’ll keep believing the Turks because they have such a wonderful record of being pro free-speech AND they surely have nothing to gain by causing us to have a rift with the Saudis.

  2. In a country with a king, the king can kill without a trial. Saudi king kills a Saudi national on Saudi territory. This happens all the time in Saudi Arabia. The media is exaggerating it.

  3. On the one hand, it’s obvious that a human being was tortured to death, in a gruesome manner that we are slowly discovering. Innocent? Yes, for the” crime.” However, he was a שונא ישראל but as a Jew, I do find it heartbreaking to get the details.

    • “However, he was a שונא ישראל…”
      Thank you for an eye-opening post. I honestly had no idea about what an antisemite, extremist, supporter of terrorism, and all-around bad guy he was until I googled “Jamal Khashoggi” + Jews. I mistakenly assumed that his opposition to the Saudi regime meant that he was a moderate reformer. Boy was I wrong.

  4. Khashoggi was a Deep State insider with connection to the CIA and has been divulging too much information in his reports recently. Enough to reveal who’s behind his murder… And as per their method, the one who killed him is already dead too – car accident.
