Shaked 'publicly gave for the first time Israel's support for Moroccan sovereignty in Western Sahara'
Israel agreed on Tuesday to bring Moroccan workers into its construction and nursing sectors, during a visit to Rabat by Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked.
The signing of the agreement was decided during a meeting between Shaked and Morocco’s Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, according to a press release from Israel’s Interior Ministry.
"The goal is to start within a month to bring Moroccan workers to Israel in the nursing and construction sectors," Shaked said.
Israel and Morocco normalized diplomatic relations in December 2020 as part of the Abraham Accords, a process between the Jewish state and several Arab countries, supported by Washington.
