World Cup 2022: Agreement between Israel and Qatar for the transport of Israeli and Palestinian supporters

FIFA announced on Thursday that an agreement has been reached between Israel and Qatar to allow Israeli and Palestinian supporters to join the Emirate and attend World Cup matches, via direct charter flights.

A press release from the international body specifies that these flights will operate “temporarily” between Israel and Qatar, which do not have diplomatic relations.

They will be chartered by an airline whose name has not been specified but which “already has landing rights in Qatar”, it is underlined.

As a reminder, more than 30,000 Israeli football fans are expected at the international event in Qatar.
