Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is eager to recognise Israel, but is likely waiting for his father King Salman’s death.
The move comes in response to a “request by the UAE” for flights to and from the country, including those from Israel.
Israel's first commercial flight to the United Arab Emirates is set for Monday, which follows the August 13 announcement of a US-brokered agreement to normalise relations between the two countries.
A meeting will allegedly take place between Israeli PM and UAE's leader before the signing of a normalisation deal between the two countries.
There is a good chance that another country will follow the UAE’s lead in the coming days, says Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner.
The catastrophe that Palestinians first faced 72 years ago seems to only worsen with time.
The uptick in Israeli state-sanctioned brutality against Palestinians has risen in the aftermath of the so-called 'peace deal'.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas tells UN Security Council the world should reject US President Trump's Mideast plan, calling it a "Swiss cheese" deal that would limit Palestinian sovereignty without bringing lasting peace.
There is not a single extremist Israeli position which the US has not adopted or embraced in its so-called 'peace plan'.
The "Deal of the Century" puts Palestinians in an impossible position. Israel will hold them all collectively responsible for rejecting the deal, even though they have no state that can represent them in negotiations.
The plan throws global diplomatic conventions out the window and opens the door for a future where only might is right.
Experts believe the plan does not give any real options to Palestinians, leaving them with no choice but to resist the Israeli occupation.
