Saudi Arabia will allow Israeli jets to use its airspace to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, The Times
of London reported on Saturday.
The report cited a US defense source as saying the Saudis have already done tests to ensure no jet is shot down in the event of an Israeli attack. The source added that the US State Department is aware of the action and agrees with it.RELATED:Russia: Sanctions ban S-300 missilesAhmadinejad: Obama made a big mistakeUnrepentant Iran derides sanctions
According to the report, a Saudi government source confirmed that a blind eye would be turned to Israeli jets attacking Iran.
An Israeli attempt to destroy Iran's nuclear capabilities would likely target
uranium enrichment facilities at Qom and Natanz as well as a heavy water
reactor at Arak and a gas storage development at Isfahan.
The UN Security Council passed a fourth set of
against Iran on Wednesday in the hopes of diplomatically
stopping Iran's development of a nuclear weapon.
Israel's Foreign Ministry released a statement following the passing of
the sanctions which said that the resolution was "not enough," and that
what was necessary now was for additional “significant steps” to be
taken by various countries and international groupings.
