Israel and UAE in historic direct flight following peace deal
A U.S-Israeli delegation on Monday took off on a historic first direct flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi which included White house adviser Jared Kushner. This direct flight marked the normalisation of the Jewish state and the UAE. The White house adviser Jared Kushner before boarding the flight said that “While this is a historic flight, we hope that it will start an even more historic journey in the Middle East and beyond,”. Kushner who is also the son in law of Donald Trump said that “The future does not have to be predetermined by the past. This is a very hopeful time.” The peace agreement was announced by Donald Trump on August 13, making the UAE only the third Middle Eastern country to establish relations with the Jewish state. The Palestinians dubbed the whole agreement as “stab in the back” by the Arabs as this agreement would normalise relations between the Arabs and the Jewish state while their own conflict remains unresolved.
