    Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir reaffirmed on Tuesday the kingdom's willingness to deploy troops to Syria as part of US-led efforts to stabilise the conflict-torn country.

    "We are in discussions with the US and have been since the beginning of the Syrian crisis (in 2011) about sending forces into Syria," Jubeir said at a press conference in Riyadh with UN chief Antonio Guterres.

    The comments were in response to a Wall Street Journal report on Monday that US President Donald Trump's administration was seeking to assemble an Arab force, including troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to help stabilise Syria.

    The report follows weekend strikes by the United States, Britain and France against Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's regime that hit targets they said were linked to its chemical weapons programme.

    Jubeir emphasised the proposal to send its troops was "not new".

    "We made a proposal to the (previous US) Obama administration that if the US were to send forces... then Saudi Arabia would consider along with other countries sending forces as part of this contingent," he said.

    Syria's war, the most tangled of the region's conflicts, is a key point of contention pitting Riyadh and its allies, who mainly back Sunni Muslim rebels, against regime backer Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah.

    Riyadh and Shiite rival Tehran also back opposing sides in other hotspots across the mainly Sunni Middle East, including Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia's southern neighbour, Yemen.

    We should eliminate all Khomeinist terrorists in Syria.

    I would say don't go inside Alone, send in the Allied forces of collective Army .. create a buffer zone , give warning to that A$$head to stop bombing his own people , if he don't than there is no other option but to launch a heavy ground offensive and arrest Assad and let the Syrians decide what they want to do with him .

    If they came here, they will stay at the back of US soldiers.

    If they come alone, and operate in the YPG terrorists region, collaborating with the rats...and without US troops. We would make mince meat out of wahhabi lizards.

    I hope Saudis aren't offering the Americans Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Malaysian and Indonesian soldiers as "Saudi troops".

    Saudis will remember what happened the last time they tried this at the beginning of the Yemen campaign.

    This dog wasted the money of Saudis since 2015 from Yemen war to the crisis in Syria and his failed investment in UK and US and the crisis if qatar to his last trip abroad don't forget the neom and 2030 projects and last but not least the so called war on corruption which he stole the money of other saudi princess and officials so he can spend it on his failed project to satisfy the western companies in order to support him to if he take the power

    Saudis are going to suffer badly because of this teen fat kid
