An Etihad Airways plane, flight EY8014, carrying Emirati government officials, left the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, headed to Ben-Gurion Airport in the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian territories, according to flight-tracking website FlightRadar24.

Zionist officials said the visit would be restricted to the airport due to coronavirus concerns.

The UAE and Bahrain in September became the first Arab states in a quarter of a century to sign deals to normalize ties with the occupation entity.

The Emirati delegation is led by Economy Minister Abdullah bin Touq al-Mari and Minister of State for Financial Affairs Obaid Humaid al-Tayer, a UAE foreign ministry spokeswoman tweeted.

Relatively, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is joining them on the trip, after having accompanied an ‘Israeli’ delegation to Bahrain on Sunday for a signing ceremony to formalize ties.

The Tel Aviv regime and the UAE have already signed several commercial deals since mid-August, when they first announced they would establish full relations.

Zionist officials said the two sides were expected to sign a mutual visa-exemption agreement – the occupation entity’s first with an Arab country.
