Three Iraqi delegations visited Israel in 2018

Three Iraqi partisan delegations, including 15 Iraqis, visited Israel in 2018.

In an official statement published on Twitter, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said “the third visit of an Iraqi delegation to Israel was made few weeks ago.”

The delegation, according to the ministry, “included Sunni, Shia figures as well as local leaders who have influence inside Iraq.”

These figures visited Yad Vashem museum to commemorate the holocaust anniversary. They met with some Israeli academic figures and officials.

Mutual visits between Arab and Israeli delegations have marked an increase recently. The trips, according to the report, were described as being of “social-cultural nature,” with the aim of building “the infrastructure for future ties” between Iraq and Israel.
