According to the information, which was confirmed by Israel, a Saudi man named "Mohammed Saud" came on a visit at the invitation of Israel.

The Israeli army spokesman for the Arab media, Avichai Adarai, denounced what he described as "activist":

Connecting with the "Century Deal"

The Israeli Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Sunday saying it would host an Arab delegation comprising media personalities, including first-time participants from Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The statement said the six Arab journalists were from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
