Israel deploys radar systems in UAE, Bahrain against Iran
By Enes Canli
JERUSALEM (AA): Israel placed early warning radar systems in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain to detect “missile threats” from Iran, according to local media on Friday.
The radar systems worked just a few months ago when Iran tried to attack Israel with drones above Iraqi airspace, Israeli Channel 12 reported.
The report claimed that the US is preparing to form a new security alliance against Iran, including with some Arab countries with which Israel does not have diplomatic ties in the region.
Israeli Channel 12 News reported. “Under the emerging agreement, the United States will work on cooperation between Israel and six Persian Gulf states, in addition to Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq. It is a joint proposal between the Democratic and Republican parties and will be tabled on Thursday in the House of Representatives.”
Meanwhile, a bill was submitted to the US Congress aimed at creating an integrated air defense system to boost cooperation between Israel and neighboring Arab states against Iran, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrived in the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi on Thursday and met President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.
