Israeli media revealed that the first shipment of Israeli goods from illegal Israeli settlements was sent to the United Arab Emirates on last Sunday.

The items transferred for the shipment are olive oil, wine, and nectar.

Yossi Dagan, who heads the Committee on Illegal Israeli Settlements in the West Bank, said that these are the primary coordinated trade deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Last December, Israeli organizations agreed to arrangements with the United Arab Emirates to send their goods to the Emirates, after the UAE consolidated relations with 'Israel', in a move followed by Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

The Palestinians criticized the arrangements for normalizing Israeli-Arab relations, saying that they consider such steps to deny Palestinian rights and serve the Israeli occupation.

The Palestinian official Hazem Qassem said ،that this step "is equivalent to enabling the Zionist settlement expansion on Palestinian lands stolen by the Israeli occupation."
