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.

"an unusual alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel"?


Nothing "unusual" in this at all.

Is SA forcing the USA to stay in their game or Not?

The puppet masters pulling strings, Petro Dollar or Russian Ties.

Look at all the potential bad guys....USMC....we'll sort it out, No one will tell U$ nothing.

Ms No's picture

If this was a Russia pivot we would have been at war 48 hours ago and constantly hearing how these particular House of Sodomies were responsible for Sept 11.  WWIII would happen before they just walked away from SA, for sure.  It still could happen if things start to teeter there.  They wont let anybody swoop in and gain power there.  ZIONIST GLOBALISM MUST HAVE IT ALL!  Damn psychos.

Something is coming regardless because these lizards just can't help themselves.  Iran has always known it was coming.  Godspeed to them.

Nothing will happen except oil returning to >$75/bbl the Saudi need to remain afloat. Maybe.

I wonder who will be piloting the Saudi planes as they bomb Lebanon - Israeli or American?  Or maybe Pakistani?

SantaClaws's picture

Or maybe by nobody physically in the plane.  The U.S. and Israel have been piloting planes remotely since at least 9/11, no?

Does it matter where the crispy-critter spam-in-a-can is shot out from? It won't come back and no-one will shed a tear. Have you seen the level of support KSA has around the world now?

Nothing could be better than sandniggers going to war against each other.

Persians are no sandniggers you Amerimutt you.

Iranians have darkish skin, live a country with lots of desert, and are moslems.  They are sandniggers.

The Levantine "Arabs" of Lebanon and coastal Syria are descended from Phonecians and also heavily bread with Christian Knights. The Persians are also quite white in many areas. To me, this looks like swarthy nigger Arabs ganging up on the last anti-Zionist, white refuges in the Middle East. I hope a few Saudi Jets get shot down and that Prince Haji of KSA gets beheaded in a coup that leads to violent civil war, one that will make the Syrian Civil War look peaceful by comparison.

Point taken.  So that's why so many ISIS commanders got 'saved'..

Hurry... the hell up...

if this goes hot it will be interesting just who's planes get shot down in the dark.  So the expendable Sauds attack Iran and a nuke goes off and the media war monkeys get to scream   " told ya so "


Beam me up scotty

Xandrino's picture

One thing is for sure...there is NO way any ME country will attack Iran without the green light from Washington ehhh I mean Tel if it happens you know who, what etc

PrivetHedge's picture

Less of an attack, more of a sacrifice..

east of eden's picture

Sure, sure. You are going to attack a country of 85 million, backed by Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Russia, China and probably now Turkey, with what? The Saudi military? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Tell us another one cause this one is a hoot.

PrivetHedge's picture

Exactly, an attack on Iran is suicide.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

Getting directly involved in Lebanon and Syria under pretext with USA approval and target selection isn't suicide, merely a calculated risk.

messystateofaffairs's picture

Russia is saying nothing but Russia/Jewmerica proxy number 2 coming up.

Altesh's picture

Notice how the ISIS situation just died down, immediatly there have been a push for more armed conflict. Im sure we will see the US attacking Iran soon. Said it a few years back, Iran will be the next country in line to be invaded. 

Paperoga's picture

The saudi flying coffins, already ridiculed by a bunch of desperate Yemen rebels, would be immediately annihilated by the Iranian s-300. If they attacked lebanon, one hour later Russia would have a military base there with the S-400. All this propaganda is just nonsense, tomorrow the stock markets reopen and they need to pump a little bit up the oil prize, that's it. 

historian40's picture

"...Russia would have a military base there with the S-400"   You mean like in Syria, where they sit there and aren't activated, allowing multiple strikes by the antichrist "jewish state"?

How about a strike on Apple and Uber?

Off Topic, but

Everyone should read Market Ticker @ Karl Denninger

"The Uber app for iOS has been given a unique privilege on the operating system which allows the app to spy on the iPhone’s screen, a researcher has discovered. ZDNet reports that the Uber app can read the screen buffer in iOS, allowing it to view and potentially record anything on your iPhone’s screen without your knowledge."

I am going to haul ass and fill up on $2.30 gas when I see the first attack.

So I can take a road trip and party with the shale boys.

Mount your camels, we're going to war!..

daedon's picture

They shouldn't  use the word "mount",

it has more than one connotation and might 

be misinterpreted, they would be better of

saying "get on your camels".

freedom1798's picture

More likely "get it on with your camels."

east of eden's picture

Nothing could be better for Trumpf, and the MIC, than if the Saudi F-15's get blown out of the skies. Then, there would be even more reason for more weapons, more expensive systems that still won't protect them.

Old King Salman was in Moscow three weeks ago. I wonder what he and Vlad talked about?

Very, very hard to believe that Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon are all going to go down at once, even against the unholy alliance. Much more likely is some kind of Israehelli head fake where they want the US to believe they are being 'murdered', again. So please come to their rescue.

What a sick a perverted world we have here.

Iran’s air force is fairly antiquated.

Just sayin’...

PrivetHedge's picture

All air forces are, that's why today they (and Russia) specialise in missles. Perhaps one day Israel will be treated to a very close, personal and short demonstration of just how effective they are.

I Write Code's picture

Well, they may just have to buy a couple dozen aircraft from Russia, with overnight delivery surcharges.

Hezbollah best order some Verba manpads.

Because of the religion-based nurturing that takes place in the Middle East, these are two questions that will never, NEVER, be heard in the Middle East: “People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along?” - Rodney King

Lost in translation's picture

Do I understand this, correctly?

US/Israel/KSA lost in Syria. Turkey is getting friendly with Russia, Kurds have realized US lied to them (again), ISIL has been defeated and relocated to New York City.

So now, instead of dealing with defeat and their own, internal contradictions, the US/Israel/KSA has decided to double-down, go for broke, and attack Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, all at once.

Did I leave anything out?

PrivetHedge's picture

Now you can see why fighting morons is more dangerous than fighting smart people. Israel truly has the dumbest bunch of sorry retards ever.

"Did I leave anything out?"

Only the results of Prof Hare's psychological tests for leaders of these three countries.

ogretown's picture

You realize of course that Robert Hare's understanding of psychopathy is, if not flawed - incredibly stunted. He spends all of his time focusing solely on the failed psychopath rather than expand his studies to include the gifted - the successful psychopath.   

smacker's picture

I've never heard that of him.

And I doubt that he would disagree that many people with psychopathic disorder are successful in business and politics. It is pretty much a pre-requisite at the higher levels. How high they are on the 0-40 scale will determine how dangerous they are.

I would not describe any psychopath as "gifted" because it implies positiveness. "Obsessed", "ruthless" or "pathological" might be better terms.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

Talented and intelligent perhaps?  


We only glimpse the ones who slip up.

Nope, you pretty much covered it. I would include Ukraine and the loss of Crimea (which was what it was all about anyway).
