Israel is reportedly aiding an exiled Arab sheikh who is trying to seize control of a strategically important Gulf emirate within close proximity to Iran, according to a Guardian newspaper report Wednesday.

According to the report the Israeli ambassador to London, Ron Prosor, has met exiled Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr al-Kasimi, who asked him to help with his campaign to oust the leadership of the northernmost state in the United Arab Emirates.

The meeting took place in London in March and has been followed by phone calls and wider assistance and advice, according to records of the relationship seen by the Guardian.
