Report: Saudi military delegation in secret visit to Israel over Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior military delegation from Saudi Arabia secretly visited the Zionist entity to discuss the nuclear deal reached between Iran and the world powers last month, the Israeli and Arab media reports said.

Israeli radio reported that Saudi Deputy Defense Minister Salman bin-Sultan, who is the brother of Saudi Arabia’s spy chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, had recently visited the Zionist entity, Al-Manar reported.

Based on a report by the Palestinian news portal al-Manar, the Israeli radio said that Salman Bin Sultan, accompanied by two Saudi officers secretly “met Israeli security leaders”.

The Saudi delegation also visited “one of the Israeli military bases accompanied by a senior member of the Israeli staff board”, the news portal reported, quoting confidential reports.

Earlier on November 24, Iran and the six world powers — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — sealed an interim deal to pave the way for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

However Israel slammed the agreement, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describing it as a “historic mistake”.

On November 17, the British newspaper The Sunday Times reported that Riyadh has given the go-ahead for Israeli planes to use its airspace for possible attacks on Iran over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

Riyadh denied the Saudi-Israeli cooperation in preparation for an attack on Iran’s nuclear program.
