(Anadolu-Turkey) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday thanked Saudi Arabia for hospitality towards Israeli passengers after their plane, traveling from Seychelles to Israel, was forced to land in Jeddah on Monday due to technical difficulties. 130 Israelis aboard the plane were housed overnight in a hotel at the airport. "I greatly appreciate the warm attitude of the Saudi authorities to the Israeli passengers whose flight was in distress and was compelled to make an emergency landing," he said. "I greatly appreciate the good neighborliness." Saudi Arabia does not have diplomatic relations with Israel, but allowed Israeli flights over the kingdom's airspace last year.
