RABAT, 23 December 2020 – An Israeli plane has completed the first direct commercial flight between Tel Aviv, Israel and Rabat, Morocco.
The flight comes on the heels of the deal reached with President Donald Trump.
Under the deal, the United States recognizes the sovereignty of Morocco over the disputed Western Sahara and Morocco agrees to recognize Israel.
The commercial flight was emblazoned with the word “peace” in three languages: Arabic, English and Hebrew.
The plane is ferrying a high-level Israeli delegation to discuss additional ways of upgrading diplomatic relations between the two countries.
