Syria - Live Updates

The Guardian


One well placed source said: "The Qataris are much more proactive than the Saudis. The Saudis are not interested in democracy, they just want to be rid of Bashar. They would be happy with a Yemeni solution that gets rid of the president and leaves the regime intact." Mustafa Alani of the Saudi-financed Gulf Research Centre in Abu Dhabi, added: "The Saudis fear that there will be blowback from Syria like there was from Iraq and Afghanistan. They don't want chaos. They want the Syrian military to take over. The whole region wants that, including the Israelis. Everyone wants an organised structure of army officers who will keep weapons under control and make sure that they are handed in."....."
