    Saudi Arabia announces 34-state military alliance to fight terrorism

    Gulf state reveals formation of coalition in statement citing ‘duty to protect the Islamic nation from the evils of all terrorist groups and organisations’

    Monday 14 December 2015 23.18 GMT

    Saudi Arabia has announced the formation of a 34-state Islamic military coalition to combat terrorism, according to a statement published on the state news agency, SPA.

    “The countries here mentioned have decided on the formation of a military alliance led by Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism, with a joint operations centre based in Riyadh to coordinate and support military operations,” said the statement, which was released on Tuesday.

    A long list of Arab countries such as Egypt, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, together with Turkey, Malaysia, Pakistan and African states were named.

    The announcement cited “a duty to protect the Islamic nation from the evils of all terrorist groups and organisations, whatever their sect and name, which wreak death and corruption on earth and aim to terrorise the innocent.”

        Right, ridiculous. Iran has done a lot to combat ISIS but of course it is excluded from this "anti-terror alliance" while the Saudis bankroll terror groups in Syria.

                Maybe it's for direct involvement in Syria?

                  I doubt any of those states are eager to get directly involved and end up at war with Russia.
