- Arab Israeli MPs: Netanyahu Tries to Cause a Regional War
Arab members of the Israeli parliament warned that Netanyahu’s reported visit to Saudi Arabia could trigger a regional war.
According to several Israeli media reports, the regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled secretly on Sunday to the Saudi city of Neom, in the northwestern province of Tabuk, where Saudi Crown Prince Muhamad bin Salman and the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a meeting.
“Netanyahu and his partners in the administration of outgoing President (Donald) Trump, along with the leaders of the (Arab) Gulf States, know he has little time and are trying to use the remaining months until Trump leaves to provoke a war,” Aida Touma-Sliman, representative of the Joint Arab List in the Israeli parliament, warned on Monday.
However, Touma-Sliman has condemned this move, arguing that Netanyahu and his allies in the White House are plotting to turn the region into an escalation zone. “The explosions we saw a few days ago are only the beginning of the next two dangerous months,” the legislator said, apparently referring to the air attacks that Israel perpetrated against Syria.
