Hellas is at 39 E
Turksat is at 42 E
Intelsat 12 is at 45 E  (wanted)

All these satellites are roughly due south or you, equally spaced along an approx horizontal line.

Note the azimuth angles for Hellas and Turksat.
Then move further along to the east, by the same amount.

Best regards, Eric.

Go here: http://www.satsig.net/maps/satellite-dish-pointing-saudi.htm
and get your azimuth and elevation angles for each satellite orbit position: 39, 42 and 45 E
My guess is that that the satellites are approx equal spacing sideways in azimuth and all are at about the same elevation.  It depends on your location in Saudi Arabia.

The geostationary satellites are in a great curving line across the sky, from down near the horizon in the south east, to high up at due south and low down in the south west.  You are looking along the top of this arc, where the curved line is approx horizontal.
