Israeli media: Oman refuses to open its airspace to Israeli flights
Israeli media reports that "Oman refuses to open its airspace to Israeli travel planes."
Israeli media reported on Thursday that "the Sultanate of Oman refused to open its airspace to Israeli flights," saying that "Iranian pressure is doing its thing."
Israel Hayom said that "Oman refuses to open its airspace to Israeli travel planes amid intense Iranian pressure."
The newspaper added, "What this means so far is that it is not possible to benefit from opening the Saudi airspace to Israeli aircraft to shorten the flight time to the Far East."
It is worth noting that earlier today, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Omani counterpart Badr Al-Busaidi discussed in a phone call "bilateral relations, regional and world issues, and the Vienna nuclear negotiations. "
Last May, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that the stances of Iran and the Sultanate of Oman were "noticeably consistent on many issues," noting that "good relations between Iran and Oman enhance regional cooperation."
Israel Hayom reported on Wednesday, that it "received internal assurances that the soldiers of the Israeli occupation forces will be allowed to fly over Saudi Arabia."
The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) in Saudi Arabia announced in July that Saudi Arabia was opening its airspace for all civil air carriers for overflying.
