Saudi Arabia has reportedly played a role in the recent US-mediated normalization agreement between Morocco and the occupying Israeli regime.
Citing unnamed diplomatic sources, Israel’s Channel 12 TV reported on Friday that Riyadh was involved in the deal, without elaborating on details.
The report also said it was “very possible” that Saudi Arabia would be prepared to normalize relations with Tel Aviv soon.
In a sign of Saudi support, a prominent newspaper associated with the kingdom’s royal family put the Morocco-Israel accord on its front page, according to the report.
Meanwhile, Israel’s Channel 13 TV reported that Saudi Arabia was working together with the outgoing administration of US President Donald Trump to get several other countries to sign deals with the regime of Israel, possibly before president-elect Joe Biden takes office next month.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was following the matter closely in a bid to prepare the ground for an eventual Saudi-Israel deal, the report said, speculating that Oman and Indonesia would be next to establish ties with Israel.
On Thursday, Trump tweeted that Morocco had decided to normalize relations with the Israeli regime after Washington agreed to recognize Rabat’s sovereignty over the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
Morocco became the fourth Arab country to take such a controversial step in the past few months.
