Until now, journalists from Morocco have come to Israel, but this is the first time journalists from Algeria and Tunisia have paid a visit.
Members of the delegation visited the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount Monday as part of their tour. Additionally, they visited Yad Vashem and are expected to tour the foreign ministry, the Supreme Court and the Knesset on Tuesday.
The original plan intended to see the hosting of eight bloggers. However, two pulled out at the last minute due to refusals by authorities to allow them to travel to Israel. The foreign ministry is also planning to introduce the delegation to Israeli journalists covering the Arab world.
