7:14 am
islamic state show damage caused by air strikes. the group says the fighters were russian as they flew in formation, which the syrian air force, which also bombs them, doesn't. from these videos it's not possible to identify whose planes they were. moscow had given washington just one hour's notice that it was launching air strikes and it asked that the u.s. and its allies stay out of syrian air strikes while russian jets were until the air. the u.s. responded by saying it would not change its operational plans. the russian buildup has been visible in syria over the last few days. it apparently flew its fighters in by using transport planes as a radar shield. russian jets and helicopters have been seen in satellite pictures and by a european news crew. the russians are acting, they say, in support of the assad regime's war against what they call terrorists, and it's the first time since the fall of the soviet union that russian planes have been active in the middle east. >> mark, thanks. now saudi arabia's foreign

minister says russia's moves are making it harder to solve the syrian crisis. in an interview you'll see only on "cbs this morning," adel al jubeir talks about the crisis. russia says it's in syria to defeat isis. do you believe that? >> i believe there is an international coalition to fight isis in syria. if the russians want to be part of that coalition, i doubt if any of the members would mind. >> but they're not. >> correct. why would they go to syria unilaterally to fight isis? >> what do you believe is the answer to that? >> i believe it's to support assad. >> russia says there can be a
7:16 am
fight against isis with assad in power. is that conceivable? >> not conceivable. he was the person who created them. >> so you believe russia is complicating this effort? >> i think they're assessment of the situation and their assessment of what is doable and not doable in syria may not be correct. >> would the kingdom of saudi arabia consider putting their soldiers, their boots on the ground in syria to defeat isis? >> we have our aircraft flying in syria, over syria, to combat isis. we continue to be part of this coalition. with regards to other issues, i think we have to consider all the options and do a cost-benefit analysis. >> what do you think should be done? what's going to break the logjam in syria? >> i believe there has to be more robust intervention in syria. i believe the world has to be more firm in insisting that
7:17 am
assad leave. if he wants to leave through a political process, that would be preferable. >> secretary kerry seemed to say that assad would stick around until isis is defeated. >> this could be a long time. i don't know. i think a political transition would require, as i mentioned, a governing council that takes over authority, prepares the country for elections, writes a new constitution, maintains the institutions of the state, both military and civilian, while assad departs. >> you can see it's the front page of the paper today too, arabs spurn military push by moscow inside syria. you already had ten countries that have been working with air strikes trying to get rid of isis, and isis has already grown in power. why all of a sudden is russia stepping in unilaterally? what else is russia trying to do by putting its largest presence in the middle east in decades? >> they say they want to prop up assad and secondly, they want to play a role. >> somebody needs to come up with something, sooner rather
