Israeli airliners can cross Saudi airspace from today

RIYADH: Following talks held here today (1st of Dec., 2020) between White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Saudi officials, KSA has agreed to allow Israeli airliners cross its airspace while flying to UAE. 

The matter was raised as soon as Kushner and Middle East envoys Avi Berkowitz and Brian Hook landed here for parleys.

It is pertinent to mention here that the accord was inked hours before Israel’s first commercial flight to the UAE. | YouTube Channel
