Saudis' shock peace moves

SAUDI Arabia has laid out plans for peace with Israel.

A hush-hush document includes a road map to end Middle East conflict.

The oil-rich kingdom is prepared to make peace with Israel . . . if American pressure can be put on its arch-foe Iran, the Riyadh foreign ministry document claims.

Its existence was leaked to the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar.

And in a further sign of a thaw in Saudi-Israeli relations, it was learned that the two nations are prepared to exchange intelligence — to use against Iran.

“We are ready to exchange experiences with Saudi Arabia and other moderate Arab countries,” confirmed Israel’s top soldier, Lieutenant General Gadi Eisenkot.

The IDF chief of staff made the shock disclosure in an interview with a Saudi paper.

“Under Trump there is an opportunity to form a new international alliance in the region,” he said.

“We need to carry out a strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat.”

The bombshell news broke as reports came from New York that Donald Trump and his advisers have started drafting an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to have been “stunned” by the fact that the Saudis are backing it.

Washington officials said that the framework could take until early 2018 to finalise.
