Satellite imagery indicates that Saudi Arabia has built a previously unknown desert missile site with launch pads that can be aimed at Iran and Israel, the  London-based IHS Jane’s Intelligence Review reported Thursday.

Saudi Arabia has long been one of the most anti-Israel countries on the diplomatic front but reportedly has cooperated with the Jewish state, which it does not recognize, in several areas. The oil kingdom is no less concerned than Israel that a nuclear Iran could attack Arab states ruled by Sunni Muslims in an effort to establish a pan-Islamic region.

The missile site probably has “limited operational capacity,” according to Jane’s but could be a training and storage site.
