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.

Trying to predict the behavior of inbred psychopaths is difficult.  It might be best to side with them making this the biggest clusterfuck imaginable.  You would think that in this weakened position that they would decline to start a bunch of conflict, or go after Iran but you never know.  Israel would definitely like them too, which could easily lead to the fall of the HOS but they are so batshit crazy magalomanical that they might just do it anyway.  Bibi isn't on the most stable footing either.  Would this make them tone down their crazy?  Doubt it.  It just probably pisses them off and makes them more dangerous and in a rush to get what they want.

When Russia clowned Israel's plans in Syria you just know Bibi and his masters were just shivering in rage.  ROFL  Of course when Israel is overcome with rage humanity will always pay some consequence.

Remarkable that so many advocate gun control for responsible US citizens, yet don't adocate gun control for every muzzie on the planet.

The solution is not to take either side. Let the semites wipe themselves out.

and yet the US is doing something it has never done in Israel before... a military base.

I didn't see this on ZH (I might have been on vacation or some such shit...but...)

Bibi is a poor clown. Same make as Obongo was.

Russia needs to expand a base in Lebanon and install the S-400. For the sake of Lebanese security and stability.

The Zio-Wahhab scoundrels will then be kept in check from airborne shenanigans.

Let's face it. The middle East is never fucking ever coming to peace. The direct players on the ground are not interested in peace and their respective Allies are not interested in peace. 

So let's just fucking get it on and get it over with already. I don't give a fuck who comes out on top, let's just end the fucking charade and be done with it.

I guess Erdogan, Sunni fundamentalists in Syria, and Egypt with their anal sphincter exams to root out fags are on the side of truth and liberty, eh?


You do know the Burkha is banned at the university level in Syria, right?  And the Christians there support the government?  The Christians know there is no such thing as a moderate head chopper.

Zerohedge must be secretly funded by the Iranians because otherwise there's no rational reason they would be writing pro-Iranian propaganda like this.

ZH writes the "perceived Iranian expansion and domination in the Middle East." Perceived?!!

Iranian forces are indisputably in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Lebanon and that ZH terms perceived?!

This is insidious propaganda.

"Insidious propaganda"? Really? Rather than point out how fucking stupid you are, I will just point out that you sound like a fucking faggot as well.

I believe Iran is in those places because it was invited and is supporting legitamit regimes. Iran is gaining influence because it is a stable ally.

Our forces are in over 100 countries and I believe we are still sporadically bombing seven.


What does that indicate about "perceived american expansion and domination?"

Send in the fighter jets from the late seventies......

CRM114's picture

Please tell me you don't actually think any media editor even knows which jets the Saudis will use, never mind know the difference between them.

They just showed stock footage of F-15C's, which are air-air only only.

I doubt the fucking Saudi pilots can Lebanon, one will probably land a missle directly on the Temple Mount.  Lol then what?

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

I doubt the Saudis do anything without Trump's approval and our military selecting target coordinates.   The pilot in the jet is just ornamentation.  Unnecessary weight.  If commercial planes take off and land by computer no doubt military aircraft do to. Just pop in the coordinates of your firing position and hit the return button afterward.


You are analyzing this thru last century's lens lol.


It will be really obvious if American fingerprints are all over the campaign

Convene an 'Emergency Meeting' for as early as a week from [this] Sunday? Doesn't sound like much of an emergency. Must take that long to get to Cairo by camel?

Looks like it. Let's see what comes outof that league meeting.

Meanwhile there are a lot of innocent people starving and dying. The UN and EU should put their foot down, pronto!

the UN and te EU are flacid... always have been...

True, sadly. But it's all those people have at the moment, the US being tied up in myrad trades and tactically having deserted the Gulf for now.

How will a neutral Lebanon affect Israels ability to enter Lebanons air space and fire missiles into Syria?

That's how douchebags go on alert, dancing around fighter jets with swords.

Well lets see, if certain predictions come true then Israel starts the last war, temple mount gets destroyed and second temple rebuilt, Iran marches a million man army up through Europe and destroys all the countries on its march (Germany actually puts up a good fight but is still beaten) then the new world order can be created in Europe and everyone can pray to the devil (and be cashless). Yep, thats how its suppose to go....
