A Iraqi-Kurdish crude oil tanker docked in Israel on Saturday night.
On Friday, JewishPress.com reported that the tanker, after not finding a buyer for its oil, due to threats from Iraq, closed a deal with Israel and would be docking in Israel. The oil is expected to be offloaded on Sunday.
Iraqi parliamentarian Abad el-Mahdi al-Hafaji said in response to the report, “The export of oil from Kurdistan to Israel is treason to Iraq, the Arab nation, and to the Palestinian cause.”
May this be the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
