Israel Ready to Work With Saudis Against Iran

Both Saudi Arabia and Israel view Iran as a main threat to the Middle East.

"The contacts with the moderate Arab world, including with Saudi Arabia, help us to stop Iran". "We are willing to exchange information with moderate Arab countries, including intelligence information, in order to deal with Iran".

Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Saturday called on the Arab world to normalize ties with the Jewish state and to present a united front against Iran's belligerence in the region.

Remarking on the importance of maintaining close communication between the two countries' heads of state, Xi said China and Saudi Arabia are comprehensive strategic partners whose strategic mutual trust is deepening.

Asked whether Israel has shared "information" with the Saudis recently, Eisenkot responded, "We are prepared to share information if it is necessary".

"There is an opportunity for a new worldwide alliance in the region", the chief of staff of the Israeli military, Gadi Eisenkot, told the paper. "We will not allow any Iranian presence".

U.S. President Donald Trump's peace envoys, seeking an Israeli-Palestinian agreement with regional support, have visited Saudi Arabia several times since he took office.

In September, a senior IDF officer noted that the Iran provides some $60 million to $70 million a year to Hamas in the Gaza Strip, plus hundreds of millions of dollars more for militias in Syria and Iraq and Houthi rebels in Yemen fighting pro-government forces backed by a Saudi- led coalition.

Also in September, Israel Radio reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had secretly met officials in Israel that month, drawing an official denial from Riyadh.
