Ambassador Marouf al-Bakhit flew to Israel and began work at his Tel Aviv office. The return of the ambassador was announced two weeks ago at the Mideast summit in Egypt, where Israel and the Palestinians agreed to a cease-fire. "It's a very welcome step and it's very important in enhancing the relationship between Israel and its neighbors," said Cabinet Minister Yitzhak Herzog.
