Israel’s military chief of staff Thursday that his country was prepared to cooperate with “moderate Arab countries” to face what he termed as Iran’s plans “to control the Middle East”.
“We are ready to exchange experience with the moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence information to face Iran,” Lieutenant General Gadi Eisenkot said in an interview with Elaph, a Saudi-run news site.
Asked whether information was shared with Saudi Arabia recently, he said “we are ready to share information if necessary. There are many common interests between us and them.”
Israel’s army confirmed the contents of the interview.
Israel and Saudi Arabia have no official diplomatic ties.
