First UAE Commercial Flight Lands in Israel

An Etihad flight carrying journalists, tourism executives, and other businessmen landed in Israel for the first time today. This flight originated in Abu Dhabi and will return later in the day. In a welcoming ceremony at Israel’s airport, Saleh Abdullah, the flight’s captain said, “We are very excited to be here. Hopefully this is the beginning of a good relationship between UAE and Israel and if someone asked me a few months ago if I would be here making a speech in Tel Aviv, I would have said this is impossible.” Please continue to pray that as Israel seeks peace opportunities with other Arab countries, that neighboring countries would be inspired to do the same with Israel. Please also pray that the potential opportunities to boost Israel’s economy will help the millions of people adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
