  • Yuval Steinitz Israel’s energy minister said that “connection with the moderate Arab world helps us to block Iran”

He alleged that Iran was aiming "to destabilise and fuel sectarian rift" on the region "and drive a wedge between ourselves and our people". For months Egypt has acted as a mediator in the various crises involving Iran and hostile Arab countries. Saudi authorities claimed of destroying the missile before reaching its destination while Houthis said that the missile hit the target successfully.

"We want to hold everyone responsible", Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said during the deliberations.

They warned Iran not to interfere in the internal affairs of the region and stressed that Tehran should halt its support for Houthi rebels and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Jubeir said the Arab Peace Initiative would normalize relations between Israel and Arab states.

"We say it in clear terms that Iranian threats have exceeded all boundaries and are pushing the region toward the abyss", said Aboul-Gheit.

The draft appears to be in sync with Saudi Arabia's strong stance against Iran since the Houthis fired a missile on November 4.

However, the Egyptian diplomat said that Arab League was "not declaring war on Iran at this stage".

He told the meeting, requested by Saudi Arabia, that current crises were triggered by repression, injustice, ignorance, terrorism, external interference, foreign agendas and expansionist ambitions in many Arab countries. The declaration called Hezbollah as "terrorist organisation".

Iranian forces have played a key role in backing the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in its war against the rebels and ISIS. The trilateral foreign ministers meeting was discussing the issues related to Syrian situation.

Saudi Arabia has accused the heavily armed Shia Hezbollah of helping the Houthis in Yemen and militants in Bahrain. Majority Shias were denied to organise religious meetings commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Hussein in the month of Muharram recently.

Sunni Muslim powerhouse Saudi Arabia and Iran, the predominant Shiite power, have for decades stood on opposing sides of conflicts in the Middle East including in Syria and Yemen.

Lebanese foreign minister Gebran Bassil -a member of the Hizbollah-allied Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese president's son-in-law - did not attend the Cairo meeting.

Lebanon's foreign minister may not attend an Arab League meeting in Cairo on Sunday; the final decision will be taken that morning, a senior Lebanese official told Reuters on Saturday.

Hezballah is part of the coalition government in Lebanese government.
