Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud has ordered the country's security forces to go on a state of high alert due to what he calls a "turbulent situation" in the region.
King Abdullah issued the order in a "top secret" letter addressed to the kingdom's security and intelligence chiefs as well as the ministers of defense and interior.
The decree, calling for preparation against "foreign or terrorist attacks," warns the Saudi security forces against any negligence in following the order, reports PressTV.
The report did not specify which country the king of Saudi Arabia had meant. It is known that the Saudis and Qatar are actively supplying weapons to Syrian opposition. In addition, recently, Saudi Arabia stated that it is ready to pay salaries to soldiers of the opposition Army of Free Syria.
In turn, Iran is arming Syria, and Iranian troops in the guise of volunteers are actively fighting against the Syrian opposition.
Meanwhile, Turkey has sent more troops to border areas with Syria, as part of a response that Ankara is preparing after the destruction of its reconnaissance aircraft RF-4E. Kavkaz Center has reported about it two days ago.
The dispatched troops include armored and artillery units, as well as SAMs.
The units tasked with "preventing violations of air, land and maritime borders".
The dispatching of troops started after the recent statements by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which he admitted taking retaliatory measures against the Assad regime if threat poses from its side.
The Turkish reconnaissance aircraft RF-4E which took off on June 22 from an Erhac airbase in Malatya province in south-eastern Turkey, disappeared from the radar screens at about noon local time in the Mediterranean Sea to the south-east of the province of Hatay bordering on Syria.
Assad's regime insisted that its forces shot down the jet over its territorial waters.
However, the Turkish side said that the plane was shot down in international airspace and that its fragments fell into the territorial waters of Syria.
