The start of the telephone service between the UAE and Israel, in the middle of a deal
Dubai: Telephone service between the United Arab Emirates and Israel began with the opening of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Associated Press journalists in Jerusalem and Dubai were able to contact each other from landlines and cell phones on Sunday.

Officials in Israel and the UAE did not immediately acknowledge that the lines had started operating.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates announced on Thursday that they had established full diplomatic relations in a US-brokered deal obligating Israel to halt its controversial plan to annex occupied West Bank land that the Palestinians seek.

The landmark agreement achieved a major foreign policy victory for President Donald Trump as he seeks re-election and reverses a change in the Middle East as shared concerns about archenemy Iran have largely outpaced traditional Arab support for the Palestinians.
