A senior Iranian military commander accused Saudi Arabia of acting as Israel’s proxy, semi-official Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.

Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, said that Jerusalem was using the ruling Al Saud family to carry out its anti-Iranian “plots,” calling the Saudi Kingdom “the defensive shield of the Zionists.”

Jafari also claimed that Saudi Arabia’s recent diplomatic offensive against Iran and its war in Yemen were actually being carried out to serve Israel’s interests.
