The United States, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia and Jordan have agreed in secret negotiations to coordinate the first flight of Palestinian pilgrims to Saudia Arabia from Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

The new route, which would enable Palestinian pilgrims to travel directly to the holiest Islamic sites in Mecca and Medina during Ramadan, was pushed by U.S. President Donald Trump after his visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel in May, according to reports.
