A rather stunning little SITREP from STRATFOR:
This one sitrep basically justifies the expense I think! Chances are this is just a signal to Iran but still, its quite unexpected.

Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times reported June 12. Defense sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow strip of its airspace in the north of the country to diminish the distance for a bombing run on Iran. To ensure the Israeli bombers pass safely, Riyadh has carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and missile defense systems not activated.
