Benjamin Netanyahu has departed for a four-country trip to East Africa, becoming the first Israeli prime minister to visit the continent in at least 30 years.
“I am leaving for an historic visit to Africa, which has great political, economic and security importance,” Netanyahu said at the airport before taking off. “I am glad that Israel is returning to Africa, in great fashion.”
The Israeli prime minister is scheduled to visit Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia.
