French media: Saudi Arabia and Qatar reflect on the possibility of supplying MANPADS to militants in Syria

59
French portal Intelligence writes that Saudi Arabia and Qatar are thinking about a possible counteraction by Russia, which is conducting an antiterrorist operation in Syria. According to the portal, Riyadh and Doha may begin deliveries of man-portable air defense systems to some units of the so-called moderate Syrian opposition, as well as supported by the Saudis and Qatarii of the Dzhebhat al-Nusrah and Ahrar al-Sham groups ("following the example of 80 and Afghanistan ").


French media: Saudi Arabia and Qatar reflect on the possibility of supplying MANPADS to militants in Syria


It is reported that Saudi intelligence has for about 4 years oversees the actions of radical extremist groups in Syria, the ultimate goal of which is to overthrow the current Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. After joining the fight against terrorism in Syria of the Russian Federation, the plans of the Saudis and Qatari can clearly be crumpled, and therefore Riyadh and Doha, according to French Intelligence, ready to start "to defend the forces prepared for the fight against Assad."

Recall that the Saudi Minister of Defense recently visited Moscow. Western media announced that the minister (he is the prince) insisted that Russia should stop the operation in Syria.

As you know, Russia offers all interested forces to come out in a united front against terrorists in the Middle East. If neither Saudi Arabia, nor Qatar (nor, by the way, the United States) have yet agreed to such a proposal of the Russian Federation, then these states have opposite interests regarding terrorism ...

        Everything is fine there ... Iran works closely with them in terms of arms deliveries.
        If the Saudis get to the end of the coast, Iran can start supplying Shiites in the Saudi territories, where they are 90%, and where almost all oil is extracted. Then it will begin on the oil market that the price of a hundred bucks per barrel will seem like a penny ... !!!

        And not only to give the Hussites the opportunity to strike at oil wells in the southern provinces of the CA, we will raise the price of oil for one and cut the Wahhabi’s wallet.

        Saudi Arabia has a well-developed export infrastructure, formed by a network of domestic oil pipelines and 7 oil loading sea terminals. At the same time, the capacities of the 3 main terminals in 2009 blocked the country's transshipment requirements by more than 50%:
        - Ras Tannura, Persian Gulf (300 million tons);
        - Yanbu, Red Sea (250 million tons);
        - Ras al-Jouima, the Persian Gulf (150 million tons).

        Indeed, in a military conflict, anything happens, a faulty rocket can reach Yanbu

We do not have a common border with the SA, there is no army (all of them were killed at the Donetsk airport), the airborne forces are one regiment of rusty aircraft, so there are reasons for using nuclear weapons! wassat

      What is interesting: it’s not the first time the SA has come to Russia to threaten with a finger. They do it correctly, but give a clear understanding. They know that the States are behind them, and they have high-quality oil. Here they are shaking. Once again we refused them, so they make a decision on MANPADS. For us, this is bad, like 50 weapons from the United States. The Americans will not back down. Their task is to draw us as deep as possible into the conflict.

    Yeah, like the French with the Mistals. Take money from the Ishilovites, but don’t deliver weapons. While the bandits will wait for the weapons, the Russians will cover them from the air and there is no need to pay a forfeit. Hard times have gone for the Saudis, the budget is bursting at the seams. )))

      I think it all depends on the flight path. Caliber is not a passenger plane. If the main section is at an altitude of 5000m, then it may fly. For example, if from a submarine, from the sea to attack. And if from the Caspian, then how many mountains, how many air defense areas need to fly around. So the distance is reduced.
