BUDAI (Dispatches) -- The UAE’s state-owned Etihad Airways has made a first known flight to the Israeli-occupied territories with the alleged goal of delivering aid to Palestinians as Arab regimes and Tel Aviv scale up their attempts to normalize relations. Ethihad, the flag carrier of the UAE, sent a cargo flight from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv on May 19 to "provide medical supplies to the Palestinians” amid a coronavirus outbreak, the airline told the Associated Press. There were no passengers on board the commercial plane, it added. The Israel Airports Authority also confirmed the flight’s landing at Ben Gurion Airport on Tuesday night.
