A Moroccan delegation of civil society organizations started a normalization visit to the "Israeli"-occupied territories, amid a deadly crackdown against Palestinians.
In further details, the visit was announced on Sunday in an Arabic-language statement issued by the "Israeli" Foreign Ministry.
"The 11 person delegation includes engineers, writers and businessman who see the importance of dialogue and communication with their peers in "Israel"," the statement explained.
"The visit will last five days and include meetings with lawmakers in the Knesset and other officials. They are also scheduled to tour a number of cities such as Haifa and ‘Jerusalem' [al-Quds], with visits to Islamic sites."
The statement added that the delegation will meet with Zionist students studying Judeo-Moroccan Arabic - the dialect of the language used by Morocco's Jewish community.
The visit has been condemned back in Morocco as it comes after Zionist occupation troops massacred at least 129 Palestinians since protests broke out along the Gaza border on March 30.
Morocco is one of several Arab countries with official diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity.
In 2013, five political parties in Morocco jointly sponsored two bills to outlaw normalization with "Israeli" entities.
The proposed law has yet to be passed by authorities.
