Israeli Media: Senior Israeli official hosted in Saudi Royal Palace
Israeli media reports a meeting between a senior Israeli official and Saudi officials.
Israeli media outlets reported on Friday that a senior Israeli official visited Saudi Arabia and met a senior Saudi official.
Israeli Channel 12 revealed that relations between the occupation and Saudi Arabia are warming up, noting that a very senior Israeli official was in Riyadh and met with officials in the Royal Palace.
Channel 12 also clarified that the purpose of the visit was to coordinate security cooperation between "Israel" and Saudi Arabia, in addition to other issues.
The channel's military commentator, Nir Dvori, said that the region is witnessing a "warming up" of relations related to an expected visit by US President Joe Biden to the region in a few weeks.
Dvori added that an Israeli official recently visited Saudi Arabia and discussed and coordinated issues related to security with his Saudi counterparts. He further declared that there are intersecting interests between the Saudis and Israelis in the region, including their common enemy, Iran.
He went on to say that "all of this is happening, with the US President expected to visit the region. The final word may not have been said here as there are attempts to create more ties, and perhaps make things public; we will have to wait and see."
Israeli media reported on Thursday that dozens of Israeli businessmen have traveled to Saudi Arabia in recent months for trade deals.
The fund has raised over 3 billion dollars, with 2 billion forcefully flowing from Riyadh’s sovereign-wealth fund, already eyeing two Israeli firms that it will be investing in, according to the sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.
Israeli media also reported that something major was going on behind the scenes between Saudi Arabia, the United States, and the Israeli occupation.
"Israel wants something out of Joe Biden's need for the Gulf states and Saudi Arabia to mitigate the surging oil prices and the Saudi's need for the recognition of [MBS] in return," Israeli Channel 13 military affairs commentator Nadav Eyal.
