Khamenei: Saudi Ties With Zionist Regime A Stab In The Back To Muslims

The Jerusalem Post reports: Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed Saudi Arabia on Monday for allegedly tightening its ties with Israel.

“Revelation of Saudi government’s relations with Zionist regime was stab in the back of Islamic Ummah,” Khamenei tweeted.

While Israel and Saudi Arabia do not have formal relations, media reports have suggested that common interests, such as a fear of Iran’s nuclear program and Tehran’s efforts to gain influence in the Middle East, have drawn the Kingdom and the Jewish state closer together.

Former Saudi general Anwar Eshki visited Israel last month, meeting with Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold and a number of Israeli MKs.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hinted repeatedly about covert ties with the Sunni Arab world based on common interests, such as the fight against extremism.

Khamenei suggested that the Saudi move to warm up to Israel, as well as the Kingdom’s involvement in Yemen’s conflict, were being guided by the United States.
