Biden takes off for Saudi Arabia

US President Joe Biden is wheels up from Ben Gurion Airport, officially on his way to Saudi Arabia.

Just before taking off, Biden stops at the top of the stairs leading to the plane and waves to the crowd, offering a special farewell to Edna Halbani, the indefatigable chief of protocol at the Prime Minister’s Office who has been a near-constant presence during foreign trips for decades.

As the plane departs, Prime Minister Yair Lapid delivers short remarks from the tarmac thanking Biden.
