Has the US partially abandoned its long-time ally in its hour of need? Greece to lend Saudi Arabia a Patriot air defence system to protect its oil fields

Greece, a NATO member and a country that often faces forms of Turkish hostilities on its doorstep, and Saudi Arabia have signed a deal to that the former can lend a Patriot air defence system to the latter.

The news from the foreign ministry of Greece comes at a time the US arms sales to the kingdom is in suspension. Saudi Arabia, however, is under barrage of missile and drone attacks on regular basis with the US air defence system being the only deterrent - or defence. 

Since there is no sign of the US easing sanctions on the kingdom, the latter has turned to new friends to protect its oil facillities and other vital infrastructure.
