A United Arab Emirates [UAE] commercial flight landed for the first time in the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian territories after weeks of announcing an unashamed normalization deal between the Arab state and the Zionist entity.

The Etihad 787-10 Dreamliner arrived with 58 passengers on board and was greeted in a ‘festive ceremony.’

"We are very excited to be here," the flight's captain Saleh Abdullah said. "Hopefully this is the beginning of a good relationship between UAE and ‘Israel’ and if someone asked me a few months ago if I would be here making a speech in Tel Aviv, I would have said this is impossible," he said.

On Tuesday, the Zionist entity and the United Arab Emirates will sign a deal to allow 28 weekly commercial flights between Ben Gurion airport, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the Transportation Ministry said on Sunday.

The aviation deal will be signed by Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Ben Gurion airport and flights are expected to begin within weeks, the ministry said.

The Etihad airliner was scheduled to return later on the same day to Abu Dhabi carrying ‘Israeli’ businessmen, tourism industry executives and journalists.
