Saudi Arabia may be targeting Israel and Iran with lorry launched missiles from a base 125 miles south-west of Riyadh, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday citing IHS Jane's Intelligence Review.

The Jane's analysts examined a satelite image of the base, built within the last five years, and found that one of the launch pads "appears to be aligned on a bearing of approximately 301 degrees and suggesting a potential Israeli target, and the other is oriented along an azimuth (bearing) of approximately 10 degrees, ostensibly situated to target Iranian locations." 

According to the report the launch pads, were designed for Saudi Arabia's arsenal of lorry launched DF 3 missiles, which have a range of 1500-2500 miles and can carry a two ton payload.
