Arab League To Hold Urgent Meeting On Iran As Saudis Reportedly Mobilize Fighter Jets

Tyler Durden's picture

The Arab League is set to hold an emergency meeting on Iran at Saudi Arabia's request, this according to Reuters and various regional sources, at a moment when Saudi fighter jets may be mobilizing for war in an attempted show of force. Egypt-based Ahram Online also reports further that the meeting will discuss "Iranian interference" in the region at League headquarters in Cairo, and other early unconfirmed reports indicate the meeting could come as early as next Sunday.

News of the Arab League extraordinary session comes as tensions are at breaking point as regional powers - especially Saudi Arabia and Israel - talk war against perceived Iranian expansion and domination in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, The Daily Star, citing the Baghdad Post, claims that Saudi Arabia has scrambled its air force for strikes in Lebanon: "Reports now state the Royal Saudi Air Force has placed its warplanes on alert to launch strikes as the region sits on a knife edge." The report accompanies undated footage of Saudi F-15's in aerial maneuvers over what is presumably a Saudi airfield.

The Daily Star adds the following accompanying the video:

The kingdom has mobilized its F-15 fighter jet fleet to launch a military operation against the Iranian-backed terrorist militia of Hezbollah in Lebanon, regional news website The Baghdad Post reports.

 

Saudi Arabia previously accused both Lebanon and Iran of committing an act of wars against it after rebels fired a missile at the King Khalid International Airport in the kingdom's capital of Riyadh.


Saudi Arabia has reportedly placed its air force on alert

However unlikely it is that the Saudis would take direct military action against Lebanon, the report reveals the legitimate fears of Lebanese citizens who are increasingly aware that their country has fallen in the cross hairs of an unusual alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel, and anti-Iranian interests which see Hezbollah and pro-Iranian proxies as the number one threat and scapegoat for all of the region's problems. 

Iran is currently being scapegoated for just about all tensions which have exploded in the gulf over the past week, including the following:

  • the civil war in Yemen,
  • the Qatar economic blockade and isolation over accusations that it is "Iran friendly",
  • the latest civil unrest in Bahrain and the alleged bombing of a major oil pipeline there,
  • ratcheting up tensions with Israel in support of Hezbollah,
  • destabilizing Lebanon itself leading to PM Saad Hariri's "resignation" - all of this precipitating the Saudi "night of the long knives".

As many astute pundits have pointed out, it's now "blame Iran time" according to the official Saudi (and allies) narrative of events in order to set the stage for public support for potential military action against Iran.

They hope to get the US involved in it.

The planes will be painted in SA and UAE colors and flown by US/UK/Israhelli pilots.As in Yemen(most of them).

La PUTAIN de France,Macron ,was in SA and UAE(could not meet Hariri,who is under arrest,a PM of a foreign country,arrested by SA and not a peep from the US and Western countries). He tried to convince Iran to renegotiate the nuclear deal to include defense missiles and long range missiles and Iran told him to FO,their defense is not for sale. They are trying to do to Iran what they did to Qaddafi before they destroyed Libya=he gave up his weapons and army for promises and then they killed him and destroyed the country.Brokered by the other PUTAIN president,Sarkozy.Only Iran is not stupid or intimidated by the Us/Israhell and their vassal's threats.Then,La Putain,made comments that Iran is becoming a threat.It seems the Europeans are again committing Hara Kiri,on orders from the BEAST,against their interests.

What idiots!

The Donald has clearly sided with SA(have you seen his pro Mohammad Bin Salman tweets ? Well,I'm not surprised.

what is funny is how many here think that if you point the OBVIOUS FACT that the Donald is a total zionist tool,a shabbos-goy,you are a Liberal or a communist or a snowflake.

Let me tell you something : I'm part of the WHOLE US population,who LOST again with this election. WE all lost.The real power won again.

Also I voted for him(as a vote AGAINST criminal Clinton and for peace,as he let us believe during the campaign) I am not blind not to see it was a false hope,a B rated show.

They will start a war against Lebanon and Iran,looks like the Europeans will be on(NATO) and the stupid US population is going to swallow all this without a peep.

On the bright side,I think this is going to be the last war of the Evil AAZ empire.

Hard times are coming!

Exactly Farsi are not Arabs in the first place, alhtough currently under theocracy, but still  sophisticated people, who have developed rapidly an own military industry, when Saudis kept on kneeling before the Kaba stone. They cannot beat Houthi rebels with US support, but start challening much more tougher guys. Saudis are on a on suicide mission, which fate the royal cleptocracy really desrves.

When enemy SAM targeting radar gets a lock on your plane, to shit in your diaper is standard operating procedure.

Remember that Saudi Arabia only has access to Lebanon through Israel, unless allowed over Egyptian airspace and then the Med, probably with aerial refueling to make it back home, since they came heavy.

In contradiction to the reply to looney...
I wouldn't be at all surprised if KSA and Israelis sit back and let the brew ferment for a while. 
Laser targeting in Beqaa Valley is SOP for Israeli / NATO / US SF units. 
They'll wait for someone to press the "Go" button, or ferster up some FF rocket attack to push the game along.

They could use Jordanian or Syrian airspace.  Of course Jordan won't have it (they're smart enough to stay out) and in Syria they are sitting ducks for S-400's.

peddling-fiction's picture

You are right about Syria being dangerous, and Jordan being "smart".

But Jordan does not share a border with Lebanon.

Only the Med, Syria and Israel do.

>Jordan does not share a border with Lebanon.

As earlier, Israel will stand fast until rockets rain down (genuine or FF), then light them up after some UN Colin Powell show.
Objective as I see it, is to encourage Lebanese to move North to clear the turf for some Greater Israeli home building....
Lebanese can join the long march to Eurostan:

No one want to put troops on the ground there. I think most likely will be a stand off proxy militia/factions, but unlike Syria they know it needs air. So North African migrants /Syrian refugee camps will be raided for "volunteers"

US Air Force has provided over 3,300 in air refuelings since 2015 for Saudi Arabias war on Yemen. I see no reason why they wouldn't help them with Lebanon as well.

It's OK if the Black Friday purchase(s) includes firearms, ammo, or firearms-related stuff.

Now we have to guess at two options:

The CIA,MI6 and every other western spook agency hasn't told the KSA that Iran has nukes,or

the KSA also has them or is relying on Israel to provide that muscle.

Neither is good.

sushi's picture

KSA has a deal with Pakistan whereby it can call on the Pak nuke armory.

In exchange for this call option KSA helped finance the PAK nuke development.

KSA already has ICBMs purchased from China a decade or so ago in secret (but they were captured on Googe earth). All they need to do is fly in the Pak warheads, mate them up to the ICBM and goodbye Iran.

 

USA and Isreal will then likely bomb the wreckage and blame Iran for starting a nuke conflict in violation of some UN ruling.

That's how it rolls in the sandy halls of the M.E.

If KSA does a first strike there will be no more KSA. Regardless of what happens in Iran.

SA has 85 AMERICAN B-61 nukes from the earlier days of the 'war against ISIS'. Why would they need Chinese weapons?

Hope Copy's picture

A delivery problem?  Nukes give off a radiation signature that is well tracked.  Perhaps they think speed is of the essence.

"we"?

Do you enjoy imagining yourself goat herding from your armchair?

east of eden's picture

Well, we KNOW KSA has them because they flew 85 of them into Incirlik when Erdogan was still 'on their side'. I doubt those 85 were returned to Israehell.

It won't take much, really. 200-300 KT on Jeaddah, Riyadh, and another one on TelAviv and it is game over.
