Arab News, a Saudi Arabian English-language daily newspaper, extended warm wishes for the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, by temporarily altering its profile picture on social media.

The picture displayed apples and honey along with the Hebrew text "Shana Tova," conveying the traditional greeting for a sweet and happy new year.

Established in 1975, Arab News is closely linked to the royal family governing Saudi Arabia and is recognized as the kingdom's first English-language daily newspaper.

This New Year's greeting coincides with ongoing efforts by the United States to facilitate a normalization agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has emphasized that such an accord is a top priority for his government. Photo by N100a at Hebrew Wikipedia.
