Israel, Saudi Arabia Cooperating on Possible Attack on Iran

“Once the Geneva agreement is signed, the military option will be back on the table. The Saudis are furious and are willing to give Israel all the help it needs,” a diplomatic source is quoted by the paper as saying.
According to the Sunday Times, as part of what it called the growing cooperation between Jerusalem and Riyadh, it is possible the kingdom has already given Israel a green light to make use of its airspace in the case of an attack.
In addition to use of airspace, the growing partnership between the unlikely regional allies has reportedly manifest as cooperation regarding usage of rescue helicopters, tanker planes and drones which could aid Israel in the case of an attack.
Last week the BBC reported that Saudi Arabia is investing in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will. According to the report, it is now possible that the Saudis might be able to deploy such devices more quickly than Iran.
