(Worthy News) - Saudi Arabia has called for two urgent meetings of its Arab allies later this month to discuss recent attacks on shipping and oil-production sites amid rising tensions with bitter regional rival Iran.

Saudi King Salman on May 18 called for leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Arab League to meet for the emergency summits in Mecca on May 30.

Saudi and other officials said the discussions would focus on an attack on four commercial vessels off the coast of the United Arab Emirates and a series of armed drone attacks on oil-production sites near Riyadh. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]

  1. Let's put a big fence around all these Arab countries and let them fight it out. They will probably annihilate each other .... and that would solve allot of world problems.
    God was right in saying that Ishmael would be a wild a_, uh donkey kicking at everyone and everything, even their own brothers.
    So I say, let's at least keep their fighting just among themselves.
