Saudis OK Israel For Attack On Iran Nuke Sites
“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” an American defense source in the region told the Times. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”
Sources in Saudi Arabia report that although it is at odds with Israel over many issues, the two share a mutual loathing of Iran. The Saudi king is also wary of Iran become a full-fledged nuclear power.
The Times also reports that there are four main targets Israel would likely hit in a bombing raid: the uranium enrichment facilities at Natanz and Qom, the gas storage development at Isfahan, and the heavy-water reactor at Arak.
Israel may also attack the lightwater reactor at Bushehr, which could produce weapons-grade plutonium when complete.
Because these targets lie as far as 1,400 miles (2,250km) from Israel, fighter jets would need to travel across Saudi Arabia to make their destinations.
