Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are backing the rebels in northern Syria and their partnership is resulting in major gains on the battlefield, reports Business Insider.

A new working relationship between the three countries is reportedly driving the opposition push in Syria, increasing its chances of toppling President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

By pumping weapons to Syrian rebels across the Turkish border, the three countries have forged a new opposition coalition known as the Army of Conquest, which has made significant gains over the past two months in Idlib province and other areas in the northwest, reports Business Insider. The report also notes that Assad’s difficulties are linked to the wider Middle East situation because of his dependence on Iran.
