Israeli sites, including the “Israel in Arabic” site, in 2016, quoted the leader of the liberal left-wing Meretz party as listing more than 100 Israeli air officers present at King Faisal’s base in Saudi Arabia.
The presence of Israeli officers at the King Faisal Air Base in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia, was the result of a Saudi-American agreement that the presence of Israelis and Americans at the air base and the absence of Saudis would be agreed on April 20, a year after the coalition war began.

In the years that followed 1994, such back-channels were fostered by Israel and the UAE. The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed Bin Zayed, completed the F-16 deal, despite knowledge that the aircraft contained Israeli technology. Bin Zayed gave Al-Suwaidi his blessing to bring delegations of influential American Jews to Abu Dhabi to meet with Emirati officials. An intelligence-sharing relationship emerged from these preliminary contacts.
There is a similarity found in Israel’s aggression in Palestine and the atrocities by Muslims in Yemen. The thing that Occupied Zionist state has been doing with Palestinian Muslims over several decades, today the same is being done by Islamic countries with the Muslims of Yemen.

And revealed that the path taken by those to reach Israel is Cyprus and from there enter the entity that arranges them to stay, treatment and tourism in an orderly manner and under the direct supervision of Israeli government bodies.
The Wall Street Journal has also for months written about some details of Saudi-Israeli cooperation. And came with evidence confirming the change in the outlook for relations with Israel by the Gulf states.

Sayyad Abdulmalik AL-Houthi , the leader of Ansarallah movement, part of the Yemeni army forces, claimed on one of his speech that Saudi Arabia is just a tool used by USA and Israel to fight Yemen to conquer it and wrestle control over Red Sea and Bab-AL-Mandab which will enable them to rule the world.
The spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement recently says Saudi Arabia never wants a strong government to be formed in Yemen, but aspiring turn the war-hit country into a client state, as the Saudi-led military coalition continues with its ceaseless airstrikes against the impoverished nation.
“The one who has killed the Yemeni people for almost the past four years and allowed Saudi-led mercenaries and foreign forces to enter the country is not representing a true government,” said Mohammed Abdul-Salam , the spokesman of Ansarallah movement, in an interview with the You News outlet on Monday.
The Saudi-led Coalition in Yemen has committed war crimes and must be punished, a new report by Human Rights Watch insists. Investigations conducted by the Coalition forces on alleged war crimes lacks credibility, says HRW, and fails to provide redress for civilian victims. The 90-page report was issued on Friday.
“The work of the Coalition’s Commission of Inquiry over the past two years has not met the international standards of transparency, integrity and independence,” says HRW. “The team did not even meet the requirements of its limited mandate to assess allegations and incidents during the Coalition’s military operations. The report clarified that the Commission presented analysis with serious flaws vis-à-vis the laws of war and reached dubious results.”
In March 2015, the US backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.
