Was Netanyahu visit to Oman a dramatic sign of warming ties?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made a rare visit to Oman, as regional Arab countries are dramatically warming their relations with the Tel Aviv regime after reports of secret contacts.

It's the first meeting of this kind since 1996. Oman and Israel reportedly had economic ties, but no diplomatic relations, in the aftermath of the 1993 Oslo Accord. The rare visit came days after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Qaboos on a three-day visit to the Persian Gulf Arab country.

Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi have no diplomatic ties and the UAE does not recognize Israel but the two sides have increased backchannel cooperation in recent years.
