Israel in ‘Advanced’ Talks for Direct Flights to Saudi

Several Hebrew media outlets cite a senior Israeli source saying there are “advanced” US-brokered negotiations with Saudi Arabia to enable direct flights between the countries as soon as next month.

The flights are meant to be to Jeddah, near Mecca, to help Israeli Muslims perform the Hajj pilgrimage.

The unnamed Israeli official is quoted as estimating that there is a 60 per cent chance the move will be announced next month.
