Saudi Arabia reportedly helped defend Israel

It appears Saudi Arabia helped Israel defend itself against Iran over the weekend, as many of Iran’s drones and missiles had to fly over Saudi airspace to reach Israel.

According to the Jerusalem Post, a source close to the Saudi Royal family says they had a system in place to shoot down any suspicious object. That same source also claims Iran instigated Hamas’ October 7th attack to harm Saudi-Israeli relations.

Only weeks before October 7th, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said his nation and Israel were close to reaching a deal.

Despite helping against Iran, the war in Gaza has created tensions between Saudi Arabia and Israel. Their foreign minister called for a ceasefire earlier today. He called the situation in Gaza “unacceptable.”
