In the last few days, Turkey has repeatedly fired missiles into Syria and according to some reports, Turkish troops have exchanged fire with Syrian government forces; senior officials from Turkey and Saudi Arabia have also threatened to send troops into the already war-torn country.

How likely is the scenario of Turkish and Saudi troops invading Syria and what would the consequences of such a move be?

Murat Bilhan, the former head of the Strategic Planning Department at Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs who is now vice-president of the Turkish-Asian Center for Strategic Studies (TASAM), spoke to Sputnik in an exclusive interview.

“I do not believe in the seriousness of the intentions of Saudi Arabia. A ground invasion of Syria under the current circumstances would be utter madness. This would further exacerbate the already extremely difficult situation in Syria. The supporters of a ground invasion do not take into account the real balance of opposing forces in Syria.”
