I have said this often on Twitter. That is is notable that despite the intense and non-stop propaganda campaign in all Saudi media against the Syrian regime, Syrian government has hitherto declined to utter a negative word against the Syrian regime. My theory all along, is that the regime still hopes to a deal under the table with the House of Saud. Today, I learned from an informed Syrian source that Syria has been trying to appease the House of Saud through its influence with the Huthis of Yemen. It has pressured the Huthis to allow for the GCC plot for Yemen to prevail.
