Trump in Jerusalem: '1st' direct flight from Riyadh, hotel turned fortress and prayer at Western Wall
Extreme security is being put in place in Jerusalem, as the Middle Eastern city gets ready for the first abroad trip by US President Donald Trump. For the "historic" two-day visit, a poison gas-safe and rocket-proof suite has been prepared for the US leader.
Accompanied by several aircraft, Air Force One is expected to land at Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport on Monday afternoon. The US presidential plane will arrive from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Haaretz reported, citing the schedule released by Israeli Prime Minister's office.
While Trump's first overseas trip has been already dubbed "historic" for many reasons, including the choice and sequence of destinations, it might also represent the first official direct flight from Saudi Arabia to Israel.
