Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara‏‏ took off from Ben-Gurion on Sunday night ahead of the ceremony at the White House on Tuesday to sign the historic peace accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The El Al plane, carrying the Netanyahus, the prime minister’s staff and Israeli journalists, landed at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington at 5 a.m. on Monday morning.

The exact text of the agreements to be signed has not yet been released.

As the delegation boarded the flight from Tel Aviv to Washington, the stairs were flanked by Israeli, US, Emirati, and Bahraini flags and the airplane itself is adorned with the word peace written in Hebrew, English and Arabic.

The UAE and Bahrain delegations are headed by their foreign ministers, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, who will sign the accords for their countries.

Bahrain’s delegation arrived in Washington on Sunday evening.

The Netanyahu’s two sons, Yair and Avner, also traveled to the US for the ceremony. Below is Avner in the airport:
