Saudi political analyst and writer Abd al-Hamid al-Ghobn said recently on the Israeli TV channel i24 News Arabic that Saudi Arabia and Israel should form a military alliance to launch a crippling strike on Iran.
Al-Ghobn added that the current situation cannot be left ‘unresolved’, as Iran continues to develop, and the 30-year long economic embargo has failed to ignite any ‘revolution’ within Iran.

Next, regarding the Houthis, I assure you this is simply a terrorist group supported by Iran. So we’re basically fighting a war against Iran, albeit indirectly. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is present in Yemen, we’re aware of that, and a group of its members have been captured.
Furthermore, the Houthis are unfortunately attacking civilian facilities. They’re using more than just small unmanned aerial vehicles loaded with explosives to strike civilian facilities. end 1:23
Therefore, we’re trying to combat (this threat). But I believe that we should directly deal with the main founder of these terrorist groups: Iran. We have to launch a military operation against Iran. I personally believe that we (Saudi Arabia) and Israel are both facing this threat. We can form a military alliance. Israel is a strong state and has enormous military capabilities, and so does the (Saudi) Kingdom. We can launch a crippling military strike against Iran that forces it to negotiate on all issues.
That’s my personal opinion, because if this issue is left unresolved in this manner, the current tense situation will become even more dangerous in the future, since Iran is in fact developing, and the economic embargo has not been effective. The embargo has been ongoing for 30 years without any success, as no revolution or the like was carried out internally (by the Iranian people).
