Israeli jets ok’d to fly over Saudi Arabia, reports ‘The Times’.
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.

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 sanctions 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.
