An Israeli reporter visits the Muslim holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia for the first time.
Channel 13’s Gil Tamari broadcasts film of him driving into the city, even though the Saudi government bans all non-Muslims from entering.
Tamari shows himself driving under the iconic gates of the city and past the Grand Mosque that houses the cube-shaped Kaaba, the holiest shrine in Islam.
The face of his driver is blurred.
Several Israeli journalists traveled to Saudi Arabia this week to cover the visit of US President Joe Biden, amid speculation that Israel and Saudi Arabia are taking steps toward normalization.
