Adel al-Jubeir, the newly appointed foreign minister tacitly recognized his country’s failure to rout Yemen’s anti-Saudi rebels and called on regional allies, including Israel, to help Saudi Arabia end the protracted war with Yemen.
AWD News “I personally discussed the Yemeni issue with His Royal Highness the King and to find a feasible solution to terminate this dilemma, I suggested Israeli help as our only hope to end the status quo. The Israelis are highly skilled and indeed proficient in this kind of warfare through decades in their confrontations with Lebanese and Palestinian militias.
To my delight, His Highness King Salman put this proposal forward for further consideration,” Qatari News Agency (QNA) quoted Mr. Al-Jubeir as saying on Friday during his recent regional tour to Arab Gulf States.
To the detriment of our inexperienced pilots, added Mr. Al-Jubeir, the Yemeni revolutionaries have in their possession the Russian lethal shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles and we lost a sum of 28 of F-15 fighters, thus in this crucial times , we are in dire need of Tel Aviv’s military prowess to curb Iran’s slow but gradual encroachment in Yemen.
So, I hope one day the Israeli hesitation to intervene in Yemen would end and the entire world will witness the comradeship and amicablel co-existence between kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Israel, after all we are historically cousins.
