February 13, 2016 at 21:52 GMT +00:00 · Published

A Turkish invasion joined by "Arab Gulf Oligarch regimes" in to Syria is a possibility, said Syrian lawmaker Omar Ossi from Damascus, adding that "I think Erdogan might commit such foolishness."

Talking about his fears of a "Turkish assault, Ossi, who heads parliament's national reconciliation committee, stated that as a member of NATO, Turkey needs the alliance's approval to send its armies to "Kurdish territories" of the "Syrian national geography."

Saudi Arabia does not "have an organised army or units to send to Syria," said Ossi. "They might gather pieces from Madagascar, Mauritania, Sudan, Djibouti and some Arab mercenaries to put together under the name of a Saudi army to send it to join to the Turkish army," he explained.

Saudi Arabia had announced an Islamic coalition against terrorism consisting of 34 Islamic states on December 15, 2015. The countries partaking in the coalition alongside Saudi Arabia being Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, State of Palestine, Comoros Islands, Ivory Coast, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria and Yemen.
