This morning one of Israel’s largest international news broadcasters broke an explosive yet not entirely surprising story that Israel would take the unprecedented step of sharing intelligence with Saudi Arabia as both countries continue to ramp up efforts to curb what they perceive as Iranian expansion in the region.

Israel’s i24NEWS cited statements by the head of the Israeli army given to a prominent Saudia Arabian newspaper on Thursday:

In an unprecedented interview with Saudi Arabia’s Alaf newspaper on Thursday, Israel Defense Force (IDF) chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot said that Israel is ready to share intelligence with Riyadh on their shared arch-foe Iran.

Eizenkot, who is the first senior Israeli military officer to be interviewed by a Saudi media outlet, called Iran the “biggest threat to the region” and said that Israel and Riyadh – which he noted have never fought one another – are in complete agreement about Iran’s intentions to dominate the Middle East.

The report continues, quoting the IDF chief:

The interview is a major public step forward in warming ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia – which do not share any diplomatic relations.

Eizenkot said that Iran wants to take control of the Middle East by creating two Shi’ite crescent, “from Lebanon to Iran and then from the Gulf to the Red Sea.”

“We must prevent this from happening,” he implored.

He said that Israel has no intention of initiating a conflict with Iran’s Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, saying that “we see Iranian attempts at bringing about an escalation, but I don’t see a high chance for this at the moment.”
