Amid reports that the US is mediating a normalization deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia, Channel 12 reports on apparent Saudi and US demands for the deal to go ahead.

The report says that Saudi Arabia is demanding the Biden administration unfreeze several major arms deals, a military alliance with the US and a full nuclear program.

Riyadh is also demanding that Israel begin a peace process with the Palestinians that will lead to a two-state solution, the report says.

The US is also demanding a peace process from Israel and an end to the controversial judicial overhaul plan, which critics say undermines Israel’s democracy.

The report says that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan are leading the negotiations for the US and the head of the Mossad chief David Barnea is representing Israel in “intensive” talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
