To bulk up your OP:
King Abdullah issued the order in a "top secret" letter addressed to the kingdom’s security and intelligence chiefs as well as the ministers of defense and interior.
A copy of the letter, dated June 27, 2012, has been obtained by Press TV.
The decree, calling for preparation against “foreign or terrorist attacks,” warns the Saudi security forces against any negligence in following the order.
The Saudi Defense Ministry consequently put all armed forces on high alert, saying all the forces inside and outside of the kingdom were ready to take part in an operation dubbed as “al-Farouq.”

Very interesting note that could possibly make sense. However it just creates more confusion for me.
Why would Saudi Arabia, a supposedly anit-Assad state jump start an operation named after something that would seem to be so obviously in line with that of Assad and his allies? Their purported presence on the southern border of Syria only makes things more interesting.

I don't know, maybe I'm trying to connect dots that aren't actually there. But thanks for the thought provoking comment.
