  • Zionist entity ready to share intel on Iran with Saudi Arabia: Military chief

Chief of Staff of Israeli regime military, Gadi Eizenkot, says Tel Aviv is ready to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia in their joint efforts to confront Iran.

In an interview with the Saudi-owned Elaph online newspaper on Thursday, Eizenkot claimed that Iran was the "biggest threat to the region” and was seeking “to take control of the Middle East.”

“This is what must be prevented in the region,” he went on to say, noting that Tel Aviv and Riyadh were in full agreement about Iran's intentions.

Eizenkot further expressed Israel’s readiness “to exchange experiences with moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence to confront Iran," the London-based daily reported. 

On Tuesday, Lebanon's al-Akhbar newspaper published a secret undated letter from Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). which put forward a plan to normalize ties with Israel despite “risks” of a public backlash.

In September, Israeli and Arab media reported that a Saudi prince had traveled to Occupied Palestine and held consultations with senior Israeli officials over “regional peace.”

A month later, an Israeli official, who was speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP Arabic that MBS had in fact been the prince who visited Occupied Palestine.
