'Israel' will not make concessions to Saudi Arabia: Saudi Sources
Saudi sources say "Israel" will not make concessions to Saudi Arabia, and Riyadh prefers to keep relations with "Israel" under the table at this stage.
Saudi sources within the ruling family revealed to Israeli media on Thursday that "Israel" is obligated to make concessions on the Palestinian cause if it is interested in full normalization with Saudi Arabia.
Roi Kais, the Arab affairs commentator on the Israeli channel KAN, claimed that "Saudi sources within the royal family have spoken to us in recent days, and said that 'if Netanyahu extends his hand and shows that he is interested in peace with the Palestinians, Saudi Arabia will extend 10 hands in his direction.'"
According to Kais, the same sources pointed out that "Saudi Arabia is very sensitive toward the Arab and Islamic streets," so achieving normalization with "Israel" without the Israeli government making concessions will lead to saying that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman "is a traitor and has sold Al-Quds."
Kais said the sources pointed out that the Israeli occupation will not make concessions to Saudi Arabia, and in Riyadh, they prefer that relations with "Israel" remain under the table at this stage.

Israeli journalist from Riyadh: KSA-'Israel' ties closer than ever
A couple of days ago, an Israeli journalist reported from the Saudi capital, Riyadh, about his impressions regarding the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and "Israel", which are currently closer than ever, according to his estimation.
Israeli journalist Henrique Zimmermann told the Israeli i24NEWS website, "Within the rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Israel, we are witnessing the presence of a Jewish community in Riyadh and an activity of Israeli businessmen who have been working for some time in the kingdom."
"We are standing at the beginning of a new era. There are new things that have started, but it needs more time," Zimmermann highlighted.
The Israeli journalist indicated that "during recent weeks, news about official relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel and information regarding the establishment of future relations between the two parties have increased."
"The Israeli Prime Minister surprised the international community in August 2020 by establishing (normalization) relations with the UAE, Sudan, Morocco, and Bahrain. These countries would not have signed the agreement without the approval of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which is the most influential country in the Arab world," Zimmermann indicated.
The Israeli journalist noted that normalization with Saudi Arabia is "one of the goals of the coming years" and that "attention is directed toward confronting Iran."
A few weeks ago, then-outgoing Israeli occupation Prime Minister Yair Lapid confirmed that "Israel" had begun a dialogue regarding Saudi Arabia's accession to the so-called "Abraham Accords".
Senior Saudi officials had told i24NEWS that Saudi Arabia's normalization with "Israel" is only a matter of time.
Israeli media had also reported that Netanyahu hinted that one of his main goals in the coming period would be to sign a "peace agreement" with Saudi Arabia.
