Recently, Knowlesys Intelligence System found that Numerous media outlets published information about Oman's refusal to open its airspace to Israeli flights。

The main contents are“According to a Hebrew media report released on 10 August, the Sultanate of Oman has refused to allow Israeli airliners to pass through its airspace. The report details that Tel Aviv is hoping to acquire approval to fly its civilian flights through the Gulf country’s airspace because it can provide speedier routes to far eastern countries. ‘Oman’s approval is very much important and necessary [for Israel to pass through its territory] because, without its consent, flights using Saudi Arabia’s airspace cannot travel to the Indian Ocean and then to various destinations in the East,’ the Israeli report states. If the sultanate maintains its refusal to open its airspace to Israel, the report goes on to say, Israeli flights would have to make their way through Yemeni airspace to fly east, which is “out of the question.” This is due to the lack of a diplomatic relationship between Sanaa and Tel Aviv, and the latter’s support for the Saudi-led coalition.”

Every day, a large amount of public information is generated on the Internet, such as social media, short video platforms and other news media, and is presented in various forms such as text, audio, video and pictures.
