Israeli minister: we have secret ties with 'many' Arab states

Riyadh is also involved in an increasingly intractable proxy war in Yemen, where millions have been affected by a Saudi-led blockade, and its affiliated factions have failed to topple President Bashar Assad in Syria.

"The Lebanese Republic, in spite of our relations with it as a brotherly Arab nation.is under the total control of this terrorist party", Sheikh Khalid said.

Riyadh's latest effort to ratchet up pressure against its Shiite rival comes after Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia earlier in the month.

Israel is ready to share "intelligence information" on Iran with Saudi Arabia, the Israel army chief, Lieutenant General Gadi Eizenkot, said in an interview with the privately owned online Saudi newspaper Elaph.

Saudi Arabia, added Al-Jubeir, will not stand idly by in the face of Iran's "blatant aggression".

But he said Israeli officials have tended to exaggerate such interactions in a bid to "drive down the price they may have to pay, especially on Palestinian issues, to expand strategic relations and ties with Arab countries".

The House of Saud has been losing ground in the multi-religious Mediterranean state, and the Bahraini foreign minister at the Arab League summit called Lebanon's Hezbollah militia "Iran's longest arm in the region".

Saudi Arabia "will not hesitate to defend its national security to keep its people safe", Jubeir said in opening remarks to the Cairo meeting.

Lieberman called on the Arab world to follow Egypt's Sadat and make peace with Israel, on the way to countering a shared foe - Iran.

Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said Lebanon was among the countries that voted in favour of the resolution, except for the points in which Hezbollah was mentioned.

The Lebanese envoy to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam, made carefully weighed comments at the meeting that reflected his country's delicate religious and ethnic balance.

The Saudi draft cited the bombing of an oil pipeline in Bahrain this month as an example of Iran's threat to regional security.

Increased tensions between Tehran and Riyadh have fuelled speculation that shared interests may push Saudi Arabia and Israel to working together against what they see as a common Iranian threat.

Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Tehran of "direct military aggression" against the kingdom by supplying the Yemen rebels with ballistic missiles.

However, the report was dismissed by some Israeli sources who claimed the newspaper was biased towards Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah.

"Iran created agents in the region, such as the Houthi and Hezbollah militias, in total disregard for all worldwide principles", said al-Jubeir.
