Al Resalah quotes an investigation by another Arabic news outlet saying that increasing numbers of prominent Gulf Arabs – princes and princesses and officials – are stealthily coming to Israel for medical treatment.
According to the investigation journalist Asaf Jaipur, there is growing medical tourism from the Gulf to Israel, as well as more moves to allow the Gulf to open its markets to Israeli companies.
Members of the royal families and wealthy people are seeking medical treatment in Israel, flying to Cyprus and from there to Tel Aviv.
There are specialist in the Gulf whose jobs are to coordinate travel to Israel and arrange their transfer to hospitals.
They are arranging transportation directly from Ben Gurion Airport to Israeli hospitals.
The princess of the royal family in Bahrain recently arrived in Cyprus, and from there to Ben Gurion Airport, where she was transferred to the Rambam hospital in Haifa. The 50 year old princess underwent surgery and then returned to Bahrain.
A large number of princes and princesses from the Gulf arrive in Israel to receive treatment; because of the reputation Israel enjoys for top-notch medicine.
In addition, the investigation showed that Israeli companies are operating in the Gulf markets freely through partnerships set up by the American companies.
He stressed that Israeli companies are an integral part of the global American companies operating in the Gulf markets segment, noting that the GCC authorities are turning a blind eye to the activities of these companies, although they recognized Israeli companies.
