Reports: Israel in ‘advanced’ talks for direct flights to Saudi Arabia next month

The flights are meant to be to Jeddah, near Mecca, to help Israeli Muslims perform the Hajj pilgrimage.

The unnamed Israeli official is quoted as estimating that there is a 60 percent chance the move will be announced next month.
