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.

Or Egypt, then come around from the Med. That would be a lot easier. Might need to refuel. But the US would take care of that. The US would provide all the intel and all that.

That is an option but Egypt and SA are not in good relations at this moment.

Seems the narrative they're trying to build right now is the Saudis and Yeminis attacked us on 9/11 and in Vegas.

Sweet how Israel is somehow getting a free pass on 9/11 now to blame it all on the Saudis, they're trying to say that Yeminis killed those people in Vegas, again Israel is not even mentioned.

Those 4chan boards spreading this are CIA/Mossad/Deep State run sites, I'm convinced of it, thats why they use all the racist language, just more divide and conquer and pushing Israel friendly narrative.

Its obvious bullshit.......I guess next they'll tell us a Saudi killed JFK, MLK, RFK and all the other good people they killed......

But, but, but... Islamic State? The pet project? Oh, wait... Instead of some  militia they now go after an sovereign country? Again?!?! Exit Islamic State, insert Hezbollah? Iran... A country with powerful friends? A country that isn't stupid and has their own defense? What's that obsession with stone age sunnies? All they want is to kill each other. Oops. There is the answer. It earns money (MIC).

Nah... Taking on Iran is suicide. Damn towel dishes can't even tackle Houthi's. MBS is trouble. Said that before. Way over his head. Egypt? So they crawl back to the Salafists. Why have a coup then? Al Sissy! Coup the Mulsim brotherhood to come crawling back? Dumb move! Fucking head choppers and their magic guy in the sky. The Persians have their own look on it.

Arabs are useful tools. Time after time they prove that. Tools you thrown away and they keep coming back to be abused some moar. No wonder nobody likes Arabs. 

Yeah... If they want to go self destruct... Let them! I don't care. I doubt the Arab people are down with this. They know the jewery. But they have as much say as we the sheeple do. Weird, with all the tribal shit going on daily there. 

Simple Islam battle. You know, that supreme Mo and his multiple wives. Got kids. Yeah... That worked out so great! It ain't our problem! This is one you need to take a rain check on. Their battle. Not ours (the Occident) although they love to pull us in for some bullshit in the magic books. Battles of battles...  You know, some mythical bullshit? Promised land and shit? Paradise? 

This shit... I just hope they're showing their dicks and bragging. Because if not... This will go VERY VERY bad. And Iran is ready. Are these muppets? Persians have a different mindset.

I hope a lotta zionists die and fertilize some weeds and desert scrub grass.

get ready to see your first tatical nukes in the middle east or tungsten from s-400 missles. iran is ready or they wouldnt have let it get this far. The house of saudi ( we suck any dick that can protect the kings and princes ) miltitary and weak ass KSA are not ready for a full blown russian war on the KSA peninsula..

Vageling's picture

KSA vs Iran is a simple issue. Goat fuckers lose. It's the people who get involved that is a big concern! Insert Israhell, USA, NATO, Russia, China... Like you said. Iran isn't sweating here. Like the DPRK they have had alot of time preparing in silence, in the background. One on one I don't see the Persians falling. When other players enter... This becomes "nuclear". Status quo blown to shit. And don't sit there giving me the puppy eyes we will not be dragged into this.

The US will stay outa war with iran and russia, we just cant compete with themand years of sorry ass .gov descisions will keep us sidelined for years to come on the world stage.

Well, that explains Jar Jar bugging out for Riyadh two weeks

ago, just ahead of the Mueller indictments, spreading 'G-d's

Word', that now I$I$ has ground to a halt, Pentagon-Mossad

will directly support al-Saud Wahabbi headchopping terrorists

with $112B worth of US arms, (that will be round-tripped right

back to shooting our own troops), but that's why Jar Jar hid out

in Israel after his trip to arm al-Saud. He's no Henry Kissinger!!

Wouldn't it be easier to cut ties with Isreal and let them fuck off?

That, is the most intelligent comment I have read from an American in a very looooong time.

Gamblers always double down, especially when they reap the gains and someone else reaps the losses.

Grandad Grumps's picture

I don't think so. The banks running the US government want the US to be in every war, especially losing ones.

Publius1688's picture

If Iran bloodies the KSA's nose right quickly in an one on one war instead of by proxy , the American narrative of 'side with the good guys and be protected' is in trouble. The Gulf States will bail and join Iraq in Iran's sphere of influence.
This can get really interesting. The Saudis would do well to de-escalate immediately.

Guentzburgh's picture

Saud will defo attack Lebanon, wtf is wrong with these short sighted journos, thats only act 1 , followin act will see Iran retaliating against Saudi, followed by Israel coming to saud help and demolishing Iran including wiping out their nuclear facilities. Russian position in Syria will be left as is unless They interfere with the new order.

Vageling's picture

No Russia and China will look away. Really? These guys, especially China, have bigger plans for the future. Iran is part of that. 

My guess... Nothing will happen. Iran can get war toys from Russia and China. KSA from the USG. I see no underdog here. 

Vageling's picture

Indeed. Though Rather I would like to see deescalation. Not a term I think MBS understands. I firmly believe this will not be a 1 vs 1 fight. Players will join. Simply too much at stake. For all parties. 

east of eden's picture

Man, are you ever fucking deluded. Israehell, will 'wipe out' Iran? HAHAHAHAHAHAH.

I'll tell you what is goint to happen. THe Saudis will commit far too many warplanes and get most of them shot out of the skies. Then, the Israehelli's will try to achieve a dual invasion of Lebanaon and Syria concurrently, and they will be fucking annihilated.

This is a joke amirite? Israeli jets couldn't subdue Lebanon much less SAA jets? This is more than popcorn stuff lol

Less than 60 KM's from the Russian S-300/S-400 instalations in Syria to Isreahell.

That ought to give them the thrills they are seeking,

Atlanta Jewish Times featured a column by its owner-publisher suggesting that U.S.-based  Israeli Mossad agents might someday need to “order a hit” on the president of the United States.

On Jan. 13 the Atlanta Jewish Times featured a column by its owner-publisher suggesting that Israel might someday need to “order a hit” on the president of the United States.

In the column, publisher Andrew Adler describes a scenario in which Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would need to “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel.”

The purpose? So that the vice president could then take office and dictate U.S. policies that would help the Jewish state “obliterate its enemies.”

Adler wrote that it is highly likely that the idea “has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles.”

Numerous Jewish leaders quickly condemned Adler, who has now apologized for the column, resigned, and put the newspaper up for sale. An Israeli columnist noted that the hatred being stirred up against Obama is similar to conditions in Israel that led to the murder of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.

Yes,well, they came out into the open about 10 years ago, believing that they had achieved their goals. Unfortunately, for them, they had not.

Now,we know who they are, where they live, what they eat, where they travel, who their children are, who their wives and concubines are.

Time's up you Israhelli FUCKS.

Grandad Grumps's picture

I am sure he was chastised for making their beliefs public. That is the son in their eyes.

Trump, the zionist lackey, has ordered his sword dancing buddies, the Saudis, to stir up shit on Iran so those fucking Israelis will get blown by one of our Presidents again.

east of eden's picture

The 'fucking Israehelli's', will 'get blown' by a Sarmat.

Jack Oliver's picture

Russia has them all running around in circles - the 'narrative' changes daily - they are completely FUCKED - no matter which way you look at it !
Hell - the Zio/US even claims THEY defeated ISIS !!

Substitute 'Russia interfered in the US elections' with 'Russia interfered with our 'genocidal' plan to implement the 'Greater Israel Project' - well - you would be a lot FUCKING closer to the REALITY !!!

Lol.  A large scale middle east proxy war with Iran. Yeah.  Grab the popcorn if you like that shit. 

NoWayJose's picture

Dear KSA -

If you cannot protect your oilfields, refining, and transport - you might re-consider. Do not assume Lebanon is helpless.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

Looks like since they couldn't stop the bridge of the Shiite arc from forming they are going after the Lebanese end.  Could that be why they had to grab that 800 billion from the other royalty and associated businessmen?  Simultaneous war in Lebanon and Yemen is probably gonna get expensive, particularly if they have to maintain a full force posture at the ready on the Iranian border.

stecha's picture

Im telling you now, Iran and co will show us the first tactical nukes of cuurent times... They will use lebenan to do it. Fuck , they may even use KSA citizens to do it. I hear they are not getting to muchwelfare these days. This is why the nigras in america burn down thier own neighbor hoods.

east of eden's picture

So the fucking Saudis, after creating, funding, training and letting loose on the world ISIS, now wants us to what? Feel sorry for them? 

All of a sudden these degenerate, sick and perverted Whabbists just want the world to return to a 'peacefull' place? I don't think so.

There is only one solution for the House of Saud - total annihilation, along with the absolutely fucking evil priests in their organization, and yes, along with the fucking Zionists that keep bebe in power.

Sorry SA, but you just don't kill and murder millions and get a way with it (like your evil sponsors do).

Looking down on you, Eden.   My comment got stuck up here.

You are fucking dead men. Mark my words. Your political fronts won't protect you, we know who you are. And when we are done with you, we will capture the 300 hundred, and put them to death in a most unappealing way. It's what you would want us to do, no?

BigCumulusClouds's picture

Saudi Arabia declaring war on Iran is like Panama declaring war on the USA.  Anyone who thinks those caviar eating Saudis can go up against Iran is foolish and then some.  Iran just fought a long war with Iraq, and they likely trained Hezbollah.  The only thing the Saudis have done is sweep up camel dung from the runway.

Vilfredo Pareto's picture

Unfortunately the USA will be involved in target selection.


All the Saudis have to do is aim where told and push the button on the signal. 


So I don't think the Iranians have much of a chance if the USA is working behind the scenes.

WorkingClassMan's picture

You're assuming Russia and China won't take an opportunity to sting the JewSA a little and help Iran behind the scenes too.  You see, the USA has caused so much trouble around the world for soe many years (at Isn'treal's demand), that most nations would like an opportunity to swipe at the paper tiger.

And truly, what will the scum in DC do?  Bankrupt finances, bankrupt morals, and an army of transexuals, women and gangbangers (the criminal kind, not the pervert kind) think the US has a chance really now?

I knew it, it is all the Jews fault.

Pure ZH.

Uh, well, yes, actually IT IS ALL THE JEWS FAULT.

Anything else intelligent you would like to share?

Sixty percent the zionist's fault isn't quite "all the Jew's fault" lol
