Sept. 6 UPDATE:
Los Angeles Times Corrects
In response to communication from CAMERA, on Sept. 2 The Los Angeles Times published a correction in the print edition making clear that the reference to the UAE likely setting up in Tel Aviv as opposed to Jerusalem due to the capital's disputed status should have been made in reference to the embassy, and not flights. See below for a detailed update.
To accompany the palpable excitement about the Emirati-Israeli breakthrough promising full diplomatic ties between the Gulf country and the Jewish state, The Los Angeles Times inadvertently served up a dose of comedy. The page 4 article in the Aug. 14 print edition blundered ("Israel suspends annexation in pact with UAE; Agreement to pursue diplomatic ties angers Palestinians aiming for a unified Arab bloc"):
Direct flights would be established as well as reciprocal embassies — although it was likely the UAE would go to Tel Aviv and not the disputed holy city of Jerusalem, claimed by both Israel and the Palestinians and controversially recognized as Israeli by Trump, the only world leader to do so.
LOL. In @latimes print 8/14: "Direct flights would be established as well as reciprocal embassies -- though Emirati flights would probably go to Tel Aviv & not holy city of Jerusalem, claimed by both Israel and the Palestinians. . ." LOL. Talk about making history. 🤣

Looks like someone got their info on Israeli airports from the World War Z movie.
