BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – A political delegation from the Gulf Cooperation Council reportedly visited northern Syria on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

According to the SOHR, the Gulf delegation traveled from Turkey to the border-city of Kobane (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

The purpose of the Gulf delegation’s visit is unknown; however, earlier this month, the Turkish media reported that Saudi and Emirati (UAE) troops had deployed to northeastern Syria.

Since these claims were made, no photos or videos have been released to corroborate these claims.

In early November, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reopened their embassy in Damascus after closing it at the start of the Syrian Conflict.

The Turks, Saudis, and Emiratis have been sponsoring and supplying weapons to head-chopping, liver-eating jihadis these past 8 years. Now that the SAA/al Quds/RuAF have pushed the foreign-backed jihadis back to N. Syria, the Turks, supposedly a rival for regional influence with the Saudis/Emiratis, is allowing the latter two access to N. Syria??? This seems like a desperate ploy by Turkey to keep the Syrian Government from ever recovering N. Syria. If I were the SAA and RuAF, I would MOAB any and all of the bases/ military gatherings in Syria of all these foreign invaders.
