BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 A.M.) – Officials from the Saudi regime met with members of the predominately Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in northeastern Syria recently, Turkish state-owned Anadolu Agency reported on Tuesday.
According to the Anadolu report, three Saudi military consultants met with the YPG in the northeast Aleppo city of Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) last Friday.
The YPG and Saudi officials discussed forming a new force in Syria that would be funded by the Gulf kingdom.
The Anadolu report added that the Saudi officials setup communication checkpoints between Hasakah city and Al-Qamishli in order to recruit new fighters.
These fighters are promised $200 if they join this new Arab force that is sponsored by Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia has not issued any response to this latest allegation.
