A delegation from the United Arab Emirates made a historic visit to Israel today, as Palestinian leaders continue to be angered by the new relationship between Israel and the Gulf state.
Emirati Finance Minister Obaid Humaid al-Tayer led his nation's delegation to Israel, in the first-ever visit by UAE officials. Israel and the UAE signed a series of agreements, including on aviation and science. US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin led the US delegation, which was received by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The meetings took place at Ben Gurion Airport due to COVID-19 concerns, The Associated Press reported.
