Saudi Army on full alert, Assad still in Syria

The Drums of War and Propaganda. Iraq 2.0.

While the army of the totalitarian dictatorship of Saudi Arabia is said to be on full alert now because of the increased level of the US-led threats of war against Syria and the alleged recent statements by the Russian President Vladimir Putin in terms of a possible military strike against Saudi Arabia by Moscow, the rumours about the visit of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad to Iran are false, of course.

The Saudi Army is on full alert since today due to the increased possibility of a military attack by the U.S. military against Syria. The ground force operations command of the Saudi Army has ordered all the military units in Saudi Arabia to stand at a level 2 alert. At least, according to the news website of Al-Ahd (Arabic).

However, some rumours also said that Putin has made some recent statements in terms of the Saudi regime and a possible military strike against Saudi Arabia. The rumours say that the Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered a massive military strike against Saudi Arabia in case the West launches its military attack on Damascus. However, such rumours are what they are – rumours till it is happening.

An excerpt of the article about the order by Putin for an immediate military strike on Saudi Arabia in case the West is launching its attack on Syria:

A grim “urgent action memorandum” issued today from the office of President Putin to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ordering a “massive military strike” against Saudi Arabia in the event that the West attacks Syria.

According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympics scheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

So, while the Saudi Army has also urged all its military units to send daily reports to the command headquarters, the Iranian administration has rejected the recent rumours about a trip by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to the Iranian capital, Tehran.

Today, the spokesperson of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Seyed Abbas Araqchi (sometimes Seyyed Abbas Araqchi), rejected the recent reports by Israeli regime papers that the President of Syria (Bashar al-Assad) would have fled to the Iranian capital, Tehran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi rejected these false articles by Israeli media that have earlier claimed that the Syrian President has flown to Iran in a new interview from today. In this interview with Press TV, Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said that these reports by the Israeli media would be “ridiculous” and just plain wrong.

Some reports in Israel by the usual regime papers have claimed that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would have left Syria in direction to Iran yesterday night. However, President al-Assad has already said that he was born in Syria and that he will therefore also die in Syria.

Further, such rumours and this kind of propaganda about the Syrian President al-Assad are not new and DEBKAfile is certainly a lot but no credible source in the most cases.
