Adviser to the Saudi Defense Minister and Official Spokesman for the Arab Joint Coalition Forces Brigadier General Ahmed Hassan Asseri discussed the significance of a Muslim military alliance to fight terrorism in an op-ed published today by Newsweek, titled “Leading From The Front.”

“For the first time in history, 39 Muslim nations have come together to establish a broad global military coalition with the sole aim of countering terrorism,” wrote Gen. Asseri.

“From a Joint Command and Coordination Center in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the newly inaugurated Islamic Military Coalition to Counter Terrorism is drawing up plans to combat terrorists and terror organizations on multiple fronts, including fighting terrorism militarily, drying up funding and combating the mindset that foments or condones terrorist activity.”

General Asseri said that this Islamic counter-terrorism military endeavor will mobilize Islamic nations against Daesh, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and groups connected to or acting as proxies for these terrorist organizations.

“This Muslim ‘coalition of the willing,’ brought together through Saudi leadership, clearly demonstrates our military and social commitment to counter terrorism,” said Gen. Asseri.
