Islamist threat at home forces Saudi rethink on Syria

Published: 02.11.14, 19:14 / Israel News

After serving for years as the main conduit for weapons and cash to rebels battling Syria's Bashar al-Assad, Saudi Arabia is shifting its policy to contain the spread of Islamist militancy at home, diplomats and figures close to the goverment say.

 

Riyadh is concerned that radicalism among rebels in Syria will boost al Qaeda at home in Saudi Arabia, which suffered a blowback last decade when fighters from the network of Osama bin Laden – himself a Saudi – returned from jihad in Afghanistan. (Reuters)
