Syria’s army goes on the offensive as U.S. bombs Assad’s foes

By Laila Bassam and Sylvia Westall BEIRUT (Reuters) – As U.S. warplanes bomb his enemies in Syria’s east, President Bashar al-Assad has set loose his own forces in the west, alarming Washington’s few friends on the ground and potentially undermining the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State.

Saudi Arabia fears Yemeni tumult may boost its main foe Iran

A view of vehicles moved by Shi'ite Houthi rebels inside a school compound that was taken over by them in SanaaBy Angus McDowall RIYADH (Reuters) – The capture of Yemen's capital by rebels with ties to Iran has jolted Saudi Arabia, prompting a scramble by Riyadh to prevent its Shi'ite Muslim rival from exploiting the takeover to make trouble in the kingdom's backyard. The Sunni Muslim country is also concerned that the security deterioration in its southern neighbor, where the Shi'ite Houthi fighters seized Sanaa on Sept. 21, does not benefit another old enemy, al Qaeda. For the hereditary rulers of Saudi Arabia, a stable, wealthy oil kingpin, the 1,400-km (870 mile) border with turbulent, impoverished Yemen which snakes over remote mountains and desert, has always been a security nightmare.
