Does the UAE and Saudi's have knowledge of an impending air strike on Iran from Israel? I would think that if war with Iran breaks out, the first counter-attack against the Israelis will come from HAMAS/Hezbollah groups based in Lebanon, which, in turn, would cause Tel Aviv to begin attacking Lebanon.
Or could this be an indication that the Syrian regime is nearing an attack of Lebanon to restrict the arms shipments going to the rebels?
