Saudi Arabia’s Arab Coalition Spokesperson, Major General Ahmed Al-Assiri, told Al-‘Arabiya News Agency on Thursday that his country is prepared to joined the US-led offensive to liberate Raqqa City from the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).

The Saudi commander claimed that his country is prepared to take part in the offensive if the US asked them.

“The kingdom is committed to the fight against ISIS in Syria as part of an international coalition, including air sorties delegated to it, whether from within the kingdom or via its warplanes stationed at the Turkish Incirlik base,” he told Al-Arabiya on Thursday.

Assiri stated that Saudi Arabia would not use ground forces during the offensive because the US wants local Syrian forces to conduct the operation.

The Saudi Air Force has been scrutinized by the international community recently for their ruthlessness and inaccurate airstrikes against the Yemeni people.

So, there is a good chance that they will not be included in the Anti-ISIS Coalition’s upcoming offensive.

Saudis are uninvited & unwelcome. Let us not forget that Saudis intervened to facilitate the transfer of ISIS mad dogs from Mosul to Syria , leaving a rearguard in Mosul to win time & save the pretenses. As both Al Nusra and ISIS shrank in size , and the latter shaved beards and threw away Afghan costumes , they become indist-inguishable , more & more. The Saudis , as benevolent benefactors of both troops , may come up with the idea of combining & uniting them around Raqqa. All that in a theatrical display of antiterrorist fervor.

Qatar money too, although they’re more behind al-Qaeda and affiliates : Daesh, AKA al-Qaeda in Iraq went out of their control since they accuse the Gulf monarchies to be corrupted.

Michael : 1st, there are two coalitions. For the US led coalition, they don’t think they can beat Daesh, they know they can do it any day, it’s just a question of will from their leaders and it’s more than clear that the US leaders are mostly willing to tool Daesh as an instrument to topple Assad or at least to weaken Syria, as having a SE/NE corridor to install the Qatar/KSA/Turkey pipeline would be enough but… it will fail.

Bootlicking bullshitting and c**p of zionism is not needed in Syria. We have your brothers like nusrats and ISIS for manure anyway.
