Israel Ready to Work With Saudis Against Iran
Arab foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, following Saudi Arabia's request to discuss Iran's "violations" and its role in "undermining Arab security and peace".
Bahrain's foreign minister alleged on Sunday that Lebanon under the "total control" of Hizballah, in a speech at an Arab League meeting called by Saudi Arabia.
Arab diplomats said a Saudi draft resolution put forward to the Arab ministers is proposing a declaration of solidarity with the kingdom and stating Arab support for actions it might take to safeguard its national security in the face of Tehran's policies.
Eisenkot said he welcomed President Donald Trump's stated commitment to confronting Iran over its ballistic missile program and deepening presence in Syria and Iraq.
While not mentioning Iran by name, he said Lebanon condemned all attacks against Arab nations, but blamed exploitable inter-Arab divisions that allowed worldwide and regional powers to promote their interests.
It is the latest dramatic twist in weeks of turmoil in the region, which followed an unexpected purge of Saudi princes and officials by crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, who has also increasingly locked Saudi Arabia on a path to confrontation with Iran. The Saudis said the missile was Iranian-made and declared the attack an act of war by the Iranians.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been promoting the idea that his country's ties with Arab nations are improving, and some experts have said there are signs that shared concerns over Iran are indeed nudging them closer. "We are willing to exchange information with moderate Arab countries, including intelligence information, in order to deal with Iran".
Gulf Arab countries are also anxious about the Islamic republic's support for Huthi rebels in Yemen.
Eisenkot added that at present Israel has no intention of attacking the Iranian-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Speaking before Al-Jubeir at the 20-minute session broadcast live, Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit was just as critical of Iran as the Saudi minister.
Yet shared anger at the 2015 Iranian nuclear accord has chipped away at their historic animosity, and the interview suggests Israel has picked a side in the swelling feud between Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia over the former's influence in Lebanon, Yemen and Bahrain.
