Eisenkot said Israel is willing to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia to confront Iran.

"With President Donald Trump, there is a chance for a new global alliance in the region and a major strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat", Eisenkot said.

Arab foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, following Saudi Arabia's request to discuss Iran's "violations" and its role in "undermining Arab security and peace".

"This morning, a decision was taken that Lebanon would be presented by Antoine Azzam, the permanent representative to the Arab League", a Lebanese foreign ministry source said. Tel Aviv is seeking rapprochement with Riyadh on the basis of common interests and coinciding threats, despite the fact that the two states have no diplomatic relations and that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is far from being resolved. We have ties, which are partially secret, with many Muslim and Arab states...

A rare interview given by the head of Israel´s armed forces to a Saudi-owned news site was published on Thursday, further fuelling talk of close links.

Top US officials, including US President Donald Trump, have also blamed Iran for the Houthis' attack, with Envoy to the UN Nikky Haley calling for Tehran to be held accountable for a ballistic missile launched by Yemeni rebels targeting Saudi Arabia in July 2017, as it was allegedly an‎ Iranian Qiam.

"Usually the one who wants those ties to be discreet is the other side", he said in response to a question about ties with Riyadh.

Asked whether any information had been shared recently with Saudi Arabia , he said "we are ready to share information if necessary".

They condemned what they described as Iran's constant meddling in Arab affairs.

He said his country was targeted by a total of 80 ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Shiite rebels since the kingdom in 2015 formed and led a coalition to fight them alongside forces loyal to the internationally recognized government there.

His son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has reportedly formed a bond with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Formal ties do not seem likely due to Israel's continuing occupation of Palestinian territory and the lack of progress in peace efforts, but behind-the-scenes cooperation has opened up in various areas, a number of experts and officials have said.

In public remarks in September, Netanyahu pointed to covert relationships with Arab states, saying, without mentioning any by name, that cooperation exists "in various ways and different levels".
