The Jewish State is reportedly working with the Gulf States to form a military defense agreement amid growing Iranian aggression; This potential military pact is taking place at a time when the US is moving towards returning to the Iran nuclear deal.
As the United States continues to take steps to renegotiate with the Islamic Republic of Iran concerning the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal, Israel is reportedly now in talks with multiple countries in the Gulf region. The report surfaced with Israel’s i24 News, stating that Israel was pursuing a “defense security alliance” with Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The officials who communicated with i24 did not confirm nor deny the report, but they did reaffirm that Israel is consistently pursuing more effective ways to better its relationship with nations in the region.
While the Jewish State normalized its diplomatic ties with Bahrain and the UAE in 2020, there is currently no official ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia. However, wherever the relationship currently stands, the Saudi Kingdom shares at least one major thing in common with Israel right now, and that’s the ever-growing aggression of the Iranian regime.
Tehran has been advancing its nuclear program in an aggressive manner over the last several months, violating multiple terms of the JCPOA. Furthermore, the Republic has threatened the Gulf region numerous times following its normalization of ties with Israel.
