Cooperation between Israel, the US, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates should strike fear in Iran, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said Monday at the Negev Summit. “The shared capabilities we are building intimidate and deter our common enemies, first and foremost Iran and its proxies,” he said. “They certainly have something to fear.” The way to stop those enemies “is not hesitation and being conciliatory; rather, it is determination and strength,” he added.

The Negev Summit, Lapid’s brainchild, was organized within a matter of days, as negotiations between world powers and Iran to return to the 2015 nuclear deal were on hold but appeared to be nearing their end. Israel and Gulf states have been dismayed at the expected results of the talks. The UAE and Saudi Arabia were especially disappointed at Washington’s response to attacks on their countries by the Iran-backed, Yemen-based Houthis, such as those that occurred over the weekend in Jeddah.
