Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash says a real campaign against the terror group has to include a ground force. The UAE seems to be following in the footsteps of Saudi Arabia which has recently called for a ground incursion into Syria. On Saturday, Syria’s top diplomat Walid al-Muallem warned that aggressors will be sent home in coffins. Russia, which has been conducting airstrikes against terrorists’ positions in Syria, has described such a move as a declaration of war. Iran has also reacted to the announcement, saying Saudi Arabia’s troop deployment to Syria sounds more like a political joke.
