King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia cut his holiday in Morocco short and returned to Jeddah on Friday “due to the repercussions of the events that are currently taking place in the region,” the state news agency SPA reported.
These events, according to the agency, inlude the American decision to provide military support for the Syiran opposition.
The United States’ announcement on Thursday was seen as a major shift in the Obama’s administration’s policy towards the Syrian crisis.
Senior U.S. officials have refused to elaborate on the kind of military aid Washington plans to offer the Syrian opposition forces.
