Saudi's 350,000 Syrian invasion force could start World War 3
Saudi Arabia said 350,000 forces from more than 20 Persian Gulf Arab nations will partake in an exercise called “North Thunder”, according to Saudi media.
Egypt, Sudan and Pakistan are among the participants in the mission that could spark World War 3.
The drill will take place in the northern part of the country, and has been described as the largest military maneuver in the history of the region, according to Press TV.
It is being seen as preparation for a ground invasion of Syria.
As reported earlier by TRUNEWS, Saudi officials said their decision to send in ground troops was “irreversible", despite Thursday night’s agreement between Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov for a cessation of hostilities.
Several Russian government officials have warned Saudi Arabia any military ground operation in Syria would be a declaration of war.
President Vladimir Putin said recently Russian cruise missiles could be equipped with nuclear warheads – but that he hoped they would never need them.
