And Israel is going to trust that Saudi Arabia isn't going to shoot down those Israeli planes and blame it on Iran's air defense? Be a great way to attack both Iran AND Israel at the same time and potentially avoid retaliation from either Israel or Iran. Or is Saudi Arabia going to trust that Iran won't attack Saudi Arabia massively as a result of an attack on Iran? That this is also part of an Israeli plan to get Iran and Saudi Arabia directly fighting each other in a protracted open war. A continuation of the fighting going on by proxy now in Syria but bleeding both Iran and Saudi Arabia directly, and potentially for years. Iran's last war was suppose to be over in a few months according to Saddam Hussein. Instead it lasted 8 years. Can Saudi Arabia trust Israel not to get Saudi Arabia into a long war? Can Israel trust that Saudi Arabia won't kill all the Israeli pilots that fly thru its territory? I'm not sure either side can.
