Yesterday it was reported that Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will head a US delegation to Israel and Morocco next week to discuss the normalization deal further, with plans for a joint US-Israeli team to take a direct flight from Tel Aviv to Rabat.
On Monday, Moroccan authorities dispersed a group of activists who gathered outside the parliament building in Rabat to denounce the normalization move and show solidarity with Palestinians.
