The first documents of the Israeli-Moroccan normalization deal will reportedly be signed in Rabat this week during the visit of a US-Israeli delegation led by Jared Kushner and Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat.

«It's our intention to sign numerous Memoranda of Understandings that will help bring these normalization agreements to life and bring substantive improvements to the lives of people both in Israel and in Morocco», Avi Berkowitz, special US representative for international negotiations, told The Jerusalem Post.

According to the same source, Israel plans to sign agreements on civil aviation and agriculture, among others. On Tuesday, December 22, the US-Israeli delegation will land in Rabat, taking the first direct flight to the country.

«On Tuesday, we will take a direct flight to Morocco and bring with us an Israeli delegation which will further increase the relationship between the two countries», Berkowitz said.

«El Al said that in honor of the occasion, the El Al flight LY555 will be decorated with a Hamsa, the flags of the three countries and the word peace written in three languages», the same source added.

For the record, Morocco has agreed to normalize ties with Israel in an agreement brokered by the United States. In exchange, the US recognized Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara and promised to open a consulate in the city of Dakhla.
