Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denounced Saudia Arabia’s growing connection with Israel on Monday, and said the United States was behind it.

Khamenei, in an online posting, wrote: “Revelation of Saudi government’s relations with Zionist regime was stab in the back of Islamic Ummah.”

He accused the United States of being behind the Israeli-Saudi warming.

“Today, the Saudi government is in hands of unwise people, but close scrutiny shows U.S. hands are behind all these issues,” he claimed.

The statement came just a few days after Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah complained that the Saudi decision to enter into “normalization of relations would benefit Israel — free of charge,” and said it was “the current worst development in the Arab sphere.”
