Over 50,000 Israelis Have Already Visited the UAE Since Peace Deal Signing

Over 50,000 Israelis have visited the United Arab Emirates since the recent normalization pact between Israel and the UAE, according to a report this week.

That number is the result of only two weeks of open commercial flights between the countries, which agreed to open the diplomatic and tourism floodgates in a historic agreement signed in August. Tens of thousands more were expected to visit during the Hanukkah holiday.

The report also said that the Jewish community center in Dubai, the UAE capital, is increasing its staff from five to “about 30” employees and that nearly 150 restaurants have begun serving kosher food. The center is planning to build a mikvah “befitting Dubai’s luxury standards.” (INN / VFI News)
