Saudis may allow Israeli fighters to overfly to strike Iran

Saudi Arabia has carried out tests to stand down its air defences to allow Israeli fighters to make bombing runs on Iran's nuclear sites.  "The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,"  it was reported, quoting US sources in the Middle-East.

This won't be the first time that Israeli fighters have overflown Saudi air space to strike. On June 7, 1981, Israeli air force F-16 fighting falcons flew over the kingdom to strike and destroy the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak.
