The former Saudi ambassador to the United States and the former US ambassador to Lebanon devised a plot in 2008 to overthrow the Syrian government, reports say.
Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud and Jeffrey Feltman reportedly devised a “well-organized” plan to create chaos in Syria.
The plot against Syria was backed by a financial support worth about “2 billion” dollars, the reports said.
According to the Saudi-US scheme, Syria was divided into three areas, “big cities, small cities and villages.” Five types of networks were also defined in the country in line with the aims of the anti-Syria plot.
The first network was named the “Fuel” comprising “educated and unemployed youths.”
The “Thugs” network was the second group which included “outlaws and criminals from remote areas, preferably non-Syrians.”
The third network was the “Ethnic-Sectarian” group consisting of “young people with limited education representing ethnic communities that support or oppose” the Syrian president.
The “Media” network was the fourth group that consisted of “some leaders of civil society institutions” that had “European funding.”
The last division was the “Capital” network comprising “traders, company owners, banks and commercial centers in the capital Damascus, the northwestern city of Aleppo and the western city of Homs.”
