Arab media figures tour occupied territory at Israel’s invitation

Following an invitation from the Israeli foreign ministry, Arab journalists and bloggers from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq and Egypt recently took part in a series of meetings and events in Israel and received tours for five days, according to different Israeli news reports

Concealing the identities of the Arab visitors, the ministry said on Twitter that some members of the delegations were from countries not having  formal diplomatic relations with the occupation state, adding that the visit would allow them to become acquainted with Israel

A picture, which is thought to be of members of the media delegation, was published along with the tweet but did not show any faces or identifiable marks

According to the Jerusalem Post website, the delegation included two musicians from Iraq

This was not the first time Arab journalists visited the Israeli occupation state following an invitation from its foreign ministry. In summer, media members from Morocco, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Syria made a similar trip
