Israeli media: KSA to 'heavily' open airspace to Israeli airlines
Following years of secret visits, business deals, and 'security' agreements seeking, "Israeli media publicizes Saudi Arabia’s normalized ties with “Tel Aviv”.
Israeli media reported that Saudi Arabia is about to open up its airspace to Israeli airlines.
The move is part of a round-trip deal between Saudi Arabia, “Israel” and the US. It should come to fruition in the near future and create a dramatic change in the map of alliances in the Middle East, according to Israeli media.
Israeli media went on to say that “Saudi airspace is open to Israeli companies only on flights to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, as part of the Abraham agreements”, stressing that all this is expected to change soon when Israeli planes and planes of foreign companies making their way to “Israel” will be able to pass indefinitely in Saudi Arabia.
In exchange for the opening of Saudi airspace, “Tel Aviv will give the green light for the transfer of the islands of Tiran and Sanafir from Egyptian sovereignty to Saudi sovereignty”, Israeli media added.
Reports have also stressed that “contacts between Tel Aviv, Riyadh, and Washington are in the most advanced stages, but final agreements have not yet been reached on the details."
Israeli media also believe that the postponement of Biden's visit to the region, from the original date at the end of June next month, is related to the US desire to reach a comprehensive and far-reaching agreement between the three parties, and only then embark on a diplomatic victory round.
On its account, “Israel Hayom”, a daily newspaper, highlighted that “Israel” and Saudi Arabia have had informal ties and secret cooperation for many years, adding that the alliance between the 2 parties is about to be published.

The alliance is mainly “against the background of the Iranian threat that is feared in both Tel Aviv and Riyadh, and in light of the Saudi desire to thaw the cold relations with the US”, the newspaper added.
“The process of normalization between “Israel” and Saudi Arabia is expected to take another step, it said.
The Israeli newspaper went on to say that the main driver of the move within the kingdom is the country's Crown Prince and de facto ruler, Mohammad bin Salman (MBS).
It is worth mentioning that US President Joe Biden will soon be visiting Riyadh succeeding his visit to "Israel".
“Israel” has continuously been interested in advancing its relations with Saudi Arabia. The major reason for this is the security coordination policy against Iran, aiming to target and weaken the axis of resistance which has given the Palestinians, over the years, more power.
All this is happening as Israeli occupation forces have considerably accelerated the killing and persecution of Palestinians, after getting a green light from Israeli senior authorities.
Al-Aqsa Mosque was not spared the aggression from Israeli forces, and it was stormed numerous times, and worshippers were attacked viciously.
"Israel's" provocative 'Flag March' has been going for years. In 2021, the march led to the 11-day aggression on #Gaza Strip. This year, #Palestinians are calling worldwide attention to raising the #Palestinian flag in defiance of the march. #RaiseTheFlag #لنرفع_علم_فلسطين pic.twitter.com/5iyIbFY0iJ— Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) May 28, 2022
In various incidents in 2022, Euro-Med Monitor reported the killing of 47 Palestinians, including 8 children and 2 women.
The number indicates a 5-time increase of Palestinians martyred in the same period in 2021.
In January, five Palestinians were martyred, in February six, and 18 in March.
Furthermore, only 14 days into April, the Israeli occupation killed 18 Palestinians.
