Report: Qatari Royal to Visit Israel in November

Qatar’s Prince Khalifa Al-Thani, a member of the royal family of Qatar, is expected to visit Israel this November, Israeli website Calcalist reports. His visit would mark the first time a member of the Qatari royal family officially visited the country.

Al-Thani’s visit will revolve around the launch of the Israel-Palestine Commercial Arbitration Center, a venture led by the President of the International Chamber of Commerce, Oren Shachor, and Palestinian Arab businessman Munib al-Masri, which is meant to solve disputes between Israeli and Palestinian businesses for amounts of up to seven million shekels.

The visit was set during a meeting last weekend between Al-Thani and Shachor to promote commercial relations between the two countries.
