Saudi Arabia would Allow Israel to Use its Airspace to Attack Iran: Report

Saudi Arabia has reportedly agreed to let Israel use its airspace to attack Iran if necessary according to Israel's Channel 2 TV station who quoted an unnamed European official.

The official claimed this was an exchange for some kind of progress on the Palestine issue.

The Saudis have declared their readiness for the Israeli Air Force to overfly Saudi air space en route to attack Iran if an attack is necessary, the report stated.

The Saudi authorities are completely coordinated with Israel on all matters related to Iran, the European official from Brussels was quoted as saying.

It is not the first time this issue has been raised, of creating an air corridor from the Saudi Arabia side to Israel to arrive directly to Iran, Tal Pavel from the International Institute for Counter Terrorism told RT.

He noted, however, that the possibility of an event like this happening is very low.

If Israel accepts the demand of restarting Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, it would do a lot to ease the tensions in the Middle East, Pavel added, AMN reported.
