Phone calls open between UAE and Israel, websites unblocked after agreement

Telephone calls between the UAE and Israel have been unblocked following a historic agreement between the two countries.

The Israeli news website The Times of Israel was also available in the UAE on Sunday, after being previously blocked in the country.

On Thursday the UAE and Israel announced a peace deal to normalize relations between the countries, in exchange for the Israeli government halting its annexation of Palestinian land.

Known as the “Abraham Accord,” the diplomatic agreement between the UAE and Israel is Israel’s first peace treaty with an Arab country in 25 years.

Israeli and Emirati delegations will meet in the coming weeks to establish bilateral agreements on a range of issues including telecommunications, tourism, and healthcare.
