DUBAI – A number of Arab countries are known to have supported Israel. In fact, they have undergone diplomatic relations to carry out cooperation between the two countries.

Here are some Arab countries that support Israel.

1. Jordan

In 1967, Jordan had joined the war against Israel, namely the Six Day War. Relations between the two countries were established after signing the Israel-Jordan peace agreement in 1994.

After the agreement was signed, Jordan and Israel also established diplomatic relations, especially in the economic and security fields.

Jordan sends labor for Israeli tourism. Meanwhile, Israel sells gas to Jordan.

2. Egypt

Egypt and Israel made peace by signing the Peace Treaty in 1979. Previously, the two countries signed the Camp David Agreement mediated by former United States President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

In February 1980, relations between Egypt and Israel were established. It is known that Egypt has an embassy in Tel Aviv and a consulate in Eilat.

Meanwhile, Israel has an embassy in Cairo and a consulate in Alexandria. In 2018, Israel exported natural gas to Egypt after a $15 billion deal was signed.
