Historic Flight
By Micah Halpern

Monday February 17, 2020
I've Been Thinking:

Earlier this week an Israeli commercial airliner flew over Sudan en route to Tel Avivís Ben Gurion airport. This was historic. Never before had an Israeli commercial aircraft crossed into Sudanese airspace.

It was all the result of a face-to-face meeting, earlier in February, between the leader of Sudan Abed al-Fattah al-Burhan and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. The meeting took place in Uganda.

The historic flight took off from the Democratic Republic of Congoís capital city, Kinshasa.

This is another example of change happening in the Middle East. Another example of Israelís integration into daily activities and operations in the Middle East.

It is hard to conceive of the significance of this simple flight. Fundamentally, it means that Israel is no longer at war with Sudan. It means that Israel need not fear that Sudan will down an Israeli aircraft crossing through their territory.

This is a transformative moment in the history of the Middle East.
