A correspondent of Zionist news broadcaster Channel 13 has published a report on his entry into Mecca after the Saudi regime allowed him to do so during the Hajj pilgrimage season.
“I was here in Mecca. The dream came true,” Gil Tamari said in a video.

This comes after the Saudi regime allowed Israelis to visit Saudi Arabia and as part of mutual visits between the two sides amidst the accelerated pace of normalisation of relations between Saudi Arabia and Tel Aviv.
At an earlier time, a team of Channel 12 arrived in Riyadh and their press crew toured several Saudi cities and interviewed a number of Saudi citizens, including Jeddah and Medina, as well as the capital, and broadcast these interviews live.
The Saudi authorities encouraged many Saudi citizens to show their admiration for Israelis, to visit occupied Palestinian cities, brag about normalisation with the Zionist occupation, greet Israeli visitors and invite them to their homes during their visit to Riyadh.
The city of Mecca, the holiest place in Islam and the site of the Kaaba, is normally considered off limits for non-Muslims, as it is reserved for religious pilgrimage and worship.
