The Israeli El Al Airlines announced today, Sunday, that it would operate its first flight from Israel to the Moroccan capital, Rabat, on December 22nd. The plane will carry a joint US-Israeli delegation.
Informed sources indicated, “It is expected that the direct flight, which will carry the number (LY 555), will take 6 hours.”
She added, “The trip follows an agreement brokered by the US, in which the two countries agreed to normalize relations earlier this month.”
And the US administration announced earlier this month that “normalization between Israel and Morocco took place under an agreement negotiated with the United States’ help.”
Morocco became the fourth Arab country to open a new diplomatic chapter towards Israel since last August, after the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan.
As part of this agreement, US President Donald Trump agreed to recognize Morocco’s legitimacy over the Sahara.
A senior US administration official said, “The agreement was concluded during a telephone interview between the US President and Moroccan King Mohammed VI.”
