An astronaut from the UAE took the flag of Israel with him into space

A year before Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed a normalization agreement, Emirati astronaut Hamza Al-Mansuri took the Israeli flag into space.

It was found out only now. Alon Ushpiz, Director General of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, spoke about this.

Astronaut Hamza Al-Mansuri took the Israeli flag with him when he flew to the International Space Station in 2019. Now he decided to donate the flag to the Israelis and for this he came to the Israeli pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai.
