    The Syrian Ambassador to Russia, Riad Haddad, said that Damascus would constitute an armed intervention by Turkey and Saudi Arabia into the situation in the country as a violation of its sovereignty and they will be ready to fight back.

    "We will resist together with our allies against this aggression, we will bravely confront it in order to protect our sovereignty. Because we believe that any military intervention should occur in coordination with the Syrian government. Otherwise it would be a violation of our sovereignty, and we in no way find that acceptable", — said the Ambassador, quoted by RIA Novosti.

    Earlier, Turkey and Saudi Arabia announced their the readiness to start a joint ground military operation in Syria. UAE and Bahrain have stated that they are also considering the possibility of participating in hostilities.
