Damascus - Syria has lashed out at Saudi leaders, accusing them of being behind the country's more than two-year armed uprising, according to statements published on Wednesday.
“The violence in Syria is being caused by Saudi arms, Saudi money and terrorists linked to Saudi Arabia,” said Information Minister Omran al-Zohbi.
Zohbi also said Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal had “Syrian blood on his hands”.
On Tuesday, the prince said during a joint news conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry that his country would help the rebels defend themselves.
He urged the international community to act to bring an end to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, telling Kerry the civil war had turned into “genocide”.
