Amazon is looking into shipping to Israel from the United Arab Emirates, according to a report Monday, in a move that could allow the e-commerce giant to expand in the Israeli market.

In the wake of the normalization deal between the countries, Amazon is now weighing shipping to Israel from its warehouses in Dubai, the Globes business daily said.

Doing so would allow Amazon to supply goods to Israelis directly, rather than through third-party sellers.

In March, Amazon blocked the shipment of most items to Israel as it began to focus on essential items for customers in the US and Europe. It also ended its offer of free shipping to Israel on orders over $49, which started in November 2019.

Amazon resumed limited shipping to Israel in May, as coronavirus lockdown measures began to be eased.
