Israel Air Force aircraft have been spotted in recent days at a Saudi Arabian military base unloading military equipment in the city of Tabuk, in northwestern Saudi Arabia, according to a report from Iranian news agency FARS.
The base will reportedly be used as a forward operating base by the Israelis as part of an offensive on an Islamic country.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend....but afterwards....
So the Iranians are trying to pick a fight with the Saudis. Why?
They sure have the jitters in Mullahland.
Good riddance to the Isalamic Republic of Iran
I can maybe see the Saudis looking the other way while the Israelis use their airspace if they think they have plausible deniability. That they would do something overt like this is Debka-style fantasy.
Huge airbase there but it is too close to a populated area and not very close to Iran. I doubt this base will be used to stage the attack. They need something far more isolated and located much closer to Iran.
Sunnis & Shi'ites have ALWAYS been fighting one another for control/dominance over the Middle East and for the unholy sites of islam.
The Saudi’s are terrified of a nuclear Iran, nuclear Israel has never bothered them. This has been sometime coming, obamas election assured that the Israelis have to do it themselves and even the Saudi’s know this. It will be an interesting strike, Isreal bombing and Saudi fighters up providing air defense.
I find it interesting that the Iranians would report it. It makes the regime appear more isolated in the Muslim world. The rulers of Araby are more interested in maintaining their cushy lives than annihilating Israel. Judenhass is boob bait for the masses, a distraction to ward off modernizing influences. They fear the Persians with good reason, mostly because their revolutionary fervor is roiling the waters the Islamic racket is floating on.
‘why the Israeli MSM is reporting this’
Perhaps it’s disinformation.
Maybe similar to Allied news ‘leaks’ about Patton leading an invasion into Dunkirk while the main invasion was going to Normandy.
I am really surprised that Iran hasn’t yet taken advantage of the chaos in the “O” administration to pull some kind of stunt in the ME.
?So the Iranians are trying to pick a fight with the Saudis. Why?
To run up the price of oil?
I was trying to think of JUST the right post...then I saw yours...PERFECT!!!
It is an interesting idea. I can't imagine the Saudi’s going along with this even if they want Iran put down, because there is no way they could hide their assistance after the fact.
