BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – Saudi Arabia is willing to send its military to areas of Syria under the control of US-backed forces according to the country’s foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir.

Speaking in front of UN Secretary-General António Guterres on Monday, Adel al-Jubeir stated that Saudi Arabia has been in discussions with relevant authorities to send some of its forces from the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) to Syria pending an official request.

The development comes after Saudi Arabia offered to foot the bill for the continued presence of US forces in Syria.

The offer was made in reaction to President Donald Trump’s statement that he wanted to withdraw US forces from the Arab republic – something which Saudi Arabia and other US-led coalition partner nations strongly oppose.

If the Kurds have heard about this in Northeastern Syria they should be getting nervous. The US made big promises to them and now there is the prospect that they may end up with Arab handlers. They had better think this over, Russia would be better.

Ya es hora que llegue la verdadera primavera Árabe al pueblo Saudí, ya los tiempos de esclavitud y Monarquía son de época feudal…
Sus mercenarios de la monarquía ya no tiene espacio en Siria, Jaish Al Islam ya fue derrotado por el ejercito del pueblo Sirio y ahora la monarquía quiere poner en servicio de EE.UU. su ejercito regular, que patético esta monarquía.
Yemen vencerá muy pronto a la monarquía y el pueblo Saudí se levantará para derrocar al genocida del rey Saudí.
Cuando llegará la democracia a Arabia Saudí?.

This is some kind of sick joke, Saudis waiting for an “official” request from the US government to enter Syria, US isnt even there legally yet now they can dish out invites. You know what…let the Saudi degenerates come and all the yanks can go home, if I was in the SAA I would be salivating at the thought. Taking on the US is problematic, taking on the Saudi Army is going to be a cake walk, they will have their land back in no time and get to meat out more punishment to the wahhabi filth.

Whom do they want to fight against? US Squatters giving rights to Saudi trespassers!! Getting into Syria might not be difficult for Saudis but getting out of Syria is surely going to be very difficult and with a big loss of face too. Trump has already put pressure on Saudis to fund the US war bills which are in excess of (12.5 Million dollars per day) and MBS has no other options but to support USA for his own survival. If for any reason US of A withdraws its support to MBS & Saudis then it will be back to… Read more »
