Saudi Arabia Will Spend $100 Million On "Restoration" Of Northeastern Syria

Raqqa in ruins

On August 16, the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C., announced in an official statement that Saudi Arabia has contributed $100 million dollars for the US-led coalition stabilization projects in the areas liberated from ISIS in northeast Syria.

“This is the largest Coalition contribution to date for these liberated areas, and follows the pledge made by Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir during the July 12, 2018 Global Coalition Ministerial Conference in Brussels, hosted by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,” the Saudi Embassy said in its statement.

Most of northeastern Syria is currently under the control of the US-led coalition and its ally, the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The U.S. Department of State welcomed the Saudi contribution in an official statement and noted that the coalition’s “recovery programming” is critical to ensure that ISIS cannot reemerge and use Syria as a base to threaten the region.

“This contribution follows the request from President Trump for partners to share the burden of promoting stability in Syria to safeguard the military gains achieved against ISIS and secure the enduring defeat of ISIS,” the U.S. Department of State statement reads.

Earlier this year, U.S. President Donald Trump expressed his will to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria and said that Saudi Arabia might have to pay if it wants continuing U.S. presence in the war torn country.

“Saudi Arabia is very interested in our decision, and I said, ‘Well, you know, you want us to stay, maybe you’re going to have to pay,” Trump said on April 4, according to the al-Jazeera TV.

This contribution confirms that Saudi Arabia has submitted to Trump’s demands. The oil-rich kingdom views the U.S. military presence in Syria as a useful tool to counter Iran’s influence in the region.

      NE Syria is under occupation by US forces, that is why KSA, UAE and Israel are able to arm and finance their Kurdish stooges and IS head-choppers.

      Russia or China could give Iran some nukes….and this gambit of Israhell would be ended.
      Both are still under BIS/Rothschilds Central Banking system.
      That could change in the Future.
      Every power trying to be the One Ring to Rule them All,…..went bust trying.
      That includes the Ancient Atlantean Era which Mainstream History deny,
      Except a couple hundred ft down off Bimini to Yucatan. …the Ancient structures are subducted and burried under shifting sands. ..
      World oceans rose over 300 ft since the Planetary Chaos circa 11,000 BC+/-

      Empire Zionism emerged from the Masonic Lodge of Lord Palmerston,
      Who went gunboat diplomacy on China during Opium wars.
      The Masonic MIC since British East India company. ..
      Now Near Global via US 800 Military bases globally.
      Add NATO. ..and flunky Muslim countries like the Saudis who pay to play.

      The Ride will wreck again in the Future.

    Gee, they better start spending money on repairing Riyadh after the Houthi missiles strike.

  • leon mc pilibin

    So these zionist scumbags think that by changing their isis IDs to sdf that they can park themselves in Syria,,,BIG MISTAKE,just like in YEMEN.It wont be too long when the SAA will have a say in what happens in the eastern part of THEIR country,,lol what a sick tribe of zionist lunatics.

    They better spend those 100 mil.$ on some decent mercenaries to fight for them in Yemen….
    (Footnote:level of sarcasm in this footnote =》100%!)

    • russ

      I know maybe hire the IDF no that would be going downhill even further.

    • S Melanson

      I think money is not the problem now – mercenaries are refusing to sign up because the dead cannot spend the money.

  • 1eeripsa

    Lol! Saudi paying for destruction caused by themselfes!

    “On August 16, the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C., announced in an official statement that Saudi Arabia has contributed $100 million dollars for the US-led coalition stabilisation projects in the areas liberated from ISIS in northeast Syria”.

    Right Syria / Russia / Iran / Hezbollah + friends; blow the hell out of it, so nothing remains.

  • J Ramirez

    100 mil is not even close to all the damage these scum bags have caused.

    • northerntruthseeker .

      Consider the BILLIONS of dollars in US weaponry that was used to level Raqqa alone, you are correct…

  • northerntruthseeker .

    This is nothing more than a PR stunt… The evil Saudis have been working side by side with the US/israel/NATO scum to take the northeastern part of Syria away permanently and to set up a puppet state that will be run by their Kurd/SDF mercenaries… The partitioning of Syria was always their Plan B after their “Plan A” for the conquering of Syria and the removal of Bashar al-Assad has failed so miserably…

  • Hisham Saber

    Some people have Yachts that cost more than 100 million.

    Please, Saudi Arabia, keep your weapons, money, fighters and influence because the Houthi’s are coming for you soon. Better to spend that 100 million on hookers and horses like you Saudi’s usually do.

    The House of Saud is living on borrowed time.

  • russ

    The House of Sodom and Gomorrah doesn’t do anything out of the goodness of their heart. These parasites are not to be trusted.

  • Rüdiger Preiss

    How about they make toilet paper out of their $100 Million and wipe their own arses …

  • S Melanson

    That should restore about one percent of Raqqa. Pffffft…

  • alejoeisabel

    This is a CIA/Mossad smokescreen. This money is for mercenaries. It is time that the Saudi princes whom Mohammed bin Salman extorted the money must now support democratic rebels in Saudi Arabia just like they did in Syria.
