Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman: the first squadron of Israeli F-16s Joined Saudi Coalition against Yemeni rebels
Riyadh, KSA)– According to Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Ahmed al-Asiri, the first Israeli F-16 warplanes have targeted a training center of notorious Houthi rebels in northern Yemeni province of al-Taiz.
“… in this crucial time we are in dire need of Tel Aviv’s military prowess to curb Iran’s slow but gradual encroachment in Yemen. I hope this felicitous Israeli intervention in Yemen would harbinger a new dawn in Arab-Israeli partnership and the entire world shall witness the comradeship and amicable relation between the armies of kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Israel,”al-Okaz cited Maj. Gen. Al-Asiri as saying.
Yesterday , Two Israeli Air Force 747 aircraft Boeing carrying weapons, added Maj. Gen. Al-Asiri , landed in Khamis Mushait base in Asir in Saudi Arabia to assist the coalition in the war against [ Houthis] rebels.
It seems like only yesterday this would've been utterly unthinkable. To my knowledge the KSA didn't ask for or get any Israeli help when it faced a potentially worse threat-- massive Egyptian intervention in neighboring Yemen.
Repulsively disgusting. Then you hear ideas that Russia should leave Iran to hang.... yeah right...
Fighting with Israel against arab opponents should deligitimize the Saudi leadership.
