The Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC] Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the guts to send its armed forces to Syria.
“They claim they will send troops [to Syria] but I don’t think they will dare do so. They have a classic army and history tells us such armies stand no chance in fighting irregular resistance forces,” Jafari told reporters in Tehran on Saturday.
He further added: “This will be like a coup de grâce for them. Apparently, they see no other way but this, and if this is the case, then their fate is sealed.”
Jafari, said this is just cheap talks, but Iran welcomes the Saudi decision if they decide to walk on this path. On Thursday, the Saudi Defense Ministry said it stood ready to deploy ground troops to Syia.
A spokeswoman for UN Syria Envoy Staffan de Mistura said that she will not comment on Saudi Arabia’s decision to send ground troops to Syria and she tries to concentrate on the intra-Syrian talks.
