Saudi Military Unable to Change Region's Status Quo

Saudi Military Unable to Change Region's Status Quo

A top Islamic Revolution Guards Corps commander slammed Saudi Arabia for fomenting regional turmoil and backing terrorist groups, but at the same time underlined that Saudis lack the ability to cause a change in regional developments militarily.
Speaking in a television talk show on Saturday night, IRGC Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Hossein Salami highlighted Saudi Arabia's incapability to influence regional developments militarily, Tasnim News Agency reported.
"Saudis might deploy forces to certain locations symbolically, but those forces will never make any determining difference," he said.
Salami touched on the Saudi regime's long history of pursuing vicious policies, including financial support for militant groups, provoking tensions in the region and causing chaos in Muslim nations.
In separate comments earlier in the day, IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari shrugged off the Saudi regime's threat to deploy forces to war-stricken Syria as empty bravado.
"I don't think that they [Saudis] would dare do so… This is because their forces are in the form of a classic army and history has proven that they do not have the ability [to enter asymmetric war]," he said.
Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various militant groups, including the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, currently controlling parts of the country.
According to the United Nations, more than 250,000 people have been killed and one million wounded during the conflict.
