Recent from The Telegraph:
An Israeli airliner made a historic first commercial flight from Tel Aviv to the United Arab Emirates on Monday, emphasising new diplomatic ties between the two countries.
The El Al Boeing 737 – with the word “peace” printed in Arabic, English and Hebrew above the cockpit – took off from Tel Aviv bound for the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, with a joint delegation of American and Israeli diplomats aboard, including Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor.
The flight from Ben Gurion airport was expected to land in Abu Dhabi around 1.05pm (BST), after flying over Saudi Arabia, one of many countries that has continued a historic boycott of Israel that followed the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
Earlier this month the UAE announced it would become only the third Middle Eastern country to normalise relations with Israel, in a deal motivated by a common hostility to Iran. It has been condemned as a “betrayal” by the Palestinian leadership.
Ahead of the symbolic flight, Mr Kushner claimed that other Arab countries would soon follow the UAE’s lead, although he did not specify when.
“While this peace agreement was thought by many to be impossible, the stage is now set for even more,” he said, adding that normalisation would bring “previously unthinkable” economic, security ties and tourism between the two countries.

In This Story: Iran
Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
