On This Day in Jewish History: August 31st, 2020


#onthisday, 2020, history is made with the first ever direct commercial flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi taking place earlier today, August 31st, 2020.


As part of the US-brokered peace and normalization plans between Israel and the UAE - a delegation of Israeli Foreign Ministry Officials and US advisors met the UAE delegation shortly after landing.


Near the top of the agenda was the establishment of embassies in both countries.


A security delegation from Israel is set to make the trip to Abu Dhabi in 2 weeks time.


In another historic happening, Saudi airspace was freely used by the Israeli plane to complete the trip (image 2) - signaling the continued path to peace and normalization between Israel and her other neighbors.


A UAE delegation is expected to make the same trip to Ben Gurion Airport in due time.
