Press TV - Israel's ambassador to the UN says the regime and various Arab countries have been working together at the UN and elsewhere against Iran.

In aphone interview with The Jerusalem Post published on Saturday, Danny Danonsaid Tel Aviv was planning a number of actions against Tehran at the UN, adding although Arab states were not co-sponsors, but there wascooperation between them.

Israel and several Arab countries, he said, were coordinating efforts to "reveal" what he called "the true face of the Iranians.

Israel has full diplomatic ties with only two Arab states, Egypt and Jordan, butlatest reports suggestTel Aviv is working behind the scenes to establish formal contacts with such countries as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain by trying to portray Iran as a common threat.

Danon compared the Arab states' attitude towards Iran before the 2015 nuclear deal and that of the current time, where Washingtons withdrawalfrom the accord in May 2018 and the Europeans' failure to fulfill their commitments under the agreement has left its fate in limbo.

Dannon claimed the Arab countries were content to let Israel lead the battle against the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)prior to its signing, but they are now actively involved with Israel in conveying the messageof the alleged Iranian threat.

Hecited the participation of Saudi Arabias Persian Gulf AffairsMinister Thamer al-Sabhan and UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef al-Otaiba, alongside Israel's US Ambassador Ron Dermer, in an anti-Iran summit in New York last Wednesday, as an instance of coordination between Tel Aviv and Arab countries.

Danon also claimed that recent raids by Yemeni forces against key Saudi oil facilities made the Iranian threat much more real for many Arab countries at the UN. They are taking it much more seriously.

The Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah movement took credit for the September 14 air raids on two Aramco installations, saying they were a response to the Saudi-led war on their country.

However, Riyadh and Washington the main sponsor of the war on Yemen pointed the finger at Iran, without providing any evidence.
