Arab League to discuss Iranian 'violations'

Arab League to discuss Iranian 'violations'”

The Saudi government had no immediate response to Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz's remarks.

Israel and Saudi Arabia have never had diplomatic ties and Riyadh has always been in unison with the rest of the Middle East in hewing closely with the Palestinian cause, a cornerstone of Arab solidarity.

According to the military correspondent of The Jerusalem Post, an interview with General Eisenkot in Tel Aviv was taken by a journalist-representative of the Druze community of Israel, who is an employee of the Saudi portal.

"Under US President Donald Trump there is an opportunity to form a new worldwide alliance in the region", Eisenkont said, "we need to carry out a large, comprehensive strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat".

"We are required today to confront Iran's policies in order to preserve our national security", al-Jubeir added at the emergency meeting requested by his country. "As a rule, the opposite side is interested in keeping these ties in secret", Steinitz told Israeli Army Radio in an interview published on Sunday. With us, usually, there is no problem, but we respect the other side's wish, when ties are developing, whether it's with Saudi Arabia or with other Arab countries or other Muslim countries, and there is much more ...

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told an Arab League meeting in Cairo that his country would "not stand handcuffed" in the face of what he called "Iranian aggressions".

"We must prevent this from happening", he stressed.

Saudi Arabia maintains that any relations with Israel hinge on Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

Israel is prepared to "exchange intelligence information" with Saudi Arabia and "other moderate Arab countries", the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) chief of staff said.

The Arab League meeting comes as tensions have been rising between long-standing rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran, including over League member Lebanon.

He said his country was targeted by a total of 80 ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Iranian-backed Shi'ite rebels since the kingdom in 2015 led a coalition to fight them alongside the internationally recognized government there.

Netanyahu has described relations with the Arab world as the "best ever", though without providing any details.

Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Tehran of "direct military aggression" against the kingdom by supplying the Yemen rebels with ballistic missiles.

"There are proven incidents of spying networks and sabotage whose destructive actions were uncovered" including in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco and Sudan, said the Arab League chief.
