Israel and Saudi Arabia may be on the path to establishing economic connections which would be a precedent in normalizing relations between the two nations, The Times reported.

According to American and Arab sources, the ties would begin with Israeli businesses allowed to operate in the Gulf region, an example being El AL gaining permission to enter and fly through Saudi airspace.

If the two increase relations, both being enemies of Iran, the dynamics in the Middle East would change.
