Israel Defense Forces chief Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi is slated to travel to an Arab country next week on a first-ever official trip.
The military censor said Friday that the trip could be reported, albeit with restrictions.
The name of the country is to remain barred from publication until Kohavi lands in the Arab nation, on Monday.
Israel has been holding official relations with the country recently, including in military-related matters, according to Hebrew-language military correspondents, who are regularly briefed off the record by senior Israeli officials.
The three-day trip will be the first time an Israeli military chief officially visits the country, the reports said.
Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco normalized relations with Israel in 2020.
In March, senior Israeli military officials wrapped up a first official trip to Morocco, where the sides signed an accord that aimed to have the two militaries collaborate.
Last month, Israeli officers and Defense Ministry officials participated in a major military drill in Morocco, as observers.
The UAE and Bahrain, meanwhile, have participated in several joint exercises with the Israeli military.
The reason for the censorship on Kohavi’s trip destination was not immediately clear. Several journalists have violated the order by strongly hinting at the country’s name on Twitter.
