The channel described this as "an important and game-changing development that alters the equation," stating that it is "a quiet and secret opening of a new trade route that circumvents Yemen and operates at full capacity." This information was translated by an activist named Ahmed Abu Gosh, who has an account under the name "Tour Guide for Andalusian History" on the "X".
The channel's correspondent, Amir Shouan, showcased in his report, which was filmed using a drone, dozens of commercial trucks stopped at the "Jordan Bridge" crossing that connects the kingdom to the occupied Palestine in the Jordan Valley.
The Israeli correspondent reveals the route of goods from the moment they arrive in Dubai, UAE, by ships, then transported by trucks through Saudi Arabia and Jordan, ending in “Israel”. Shouan conducted interviews with truck drivers who stated that they transport goods such as peppers, date syrup, electrical appliances, and others.
The report also tracks one of the trucks carrying a UAE license plate as it travels along the road between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, then across the vast Saudi desert until it reaches the Jordan River crossing before entering “Israel”.
The Israeli journalist states that "this scene of trucks with UAE plates in Israel is the implementation of the “Abraham Accords”," referring to the normalization agreement between the Gulf states and Israel signed in 2020. After entering “Israel”, the UAE trucks unload their cargo, which is then transported by Israeli drivers to various parts of the country, according to the Hebrew channel's report.
The correspondent states that the transportation of goods through this new land bridge to Israel takes only five days.
The launch of this trade route comes amid the suffocating blockade imposed by Israel on the Gaza Strip and the closure of the Rafah crossing, which prevents humanitarian aid from reaching the Palestinians who have been enduring a genocide for 116 days.
Hundreds of trucks filled with tons of humanitarian aid are piled up at the Rafah crossing, and only a limited number of trucks, not exceeding 80 on the best days, are allowed to enter the besieged territory after being inspected by Israeli soldiers.
In December of last year, the Hebrew newspaper Ma'ariv revealed an agreement between the UAE and Israel to establish a land bridge between the ports of Haifa and Dubai to "overcome the threat posed by the Yemeni army" to ships passing through the Red Sea.
The newspaper mentioned that, in the midst of the ongoing war on the Gaza Strip, an agreement was signed with the logistics services company "Portrans" based in the UAE, in cooperation with Dubai World Ports. The agreement involves operating a land bridge to transport goods on a road connecting Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Haifa Port, and vice versa.
According to the Hebrew newspaper, the land bridge, which has obtained the approval of the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the government, is expected to save 80% of the time compared to the maritime route, providing a faster alternative to the Suez Canal and solving security problems at sea at a competitive price.
As part of the agreement, the two parties will cooperate in the field of land transportation for goods on the "land bridge," allowing freight forwarders and transport service providers to use the "Trucknet" platform to simplify road transport, according to the newspaper.#Normalization #GazaGenocide 24-02-13
