Head of Moroccan senate to make official visit to Knesset

The head of Morocco’s senate, Enaam Mayara, will make an official visit to Israel’s parliament.

Mayara’s trip will mark the first visit by a Moroccan leader to Israel’s legislative body, as well as being one of the most high-level visits by a foreign Muslim politician to Knesset.

Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana, who formally invited President of the Moroccan House of Councillors Mayara, said the trip is “a precedent-setting visit that attests to the new era that has been created in Israel-Morocco relations.”

The Moroccan senate head’s visit will follow reciprocal relationship-building moves taken by Israel in the past months.

In June 2023, Ohana made a Knesset speaker’s first visit to Morocco’s parliament, and a delegation of Israeli lawmakers visited the Kingdom this summer. as part of a broader parliamentary forum.
