Reports: Bahrain to Normalize Relations with Israel


Israeli media reported on Friday that the Kingdom of Bahrain will normalize relations with Israel, following the same path as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which announced a peace deal with Israel on August 13.

President Donald Trump, who brokered both deals, was expected to make a formal announcement on Friday, while Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa is due in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

Amichai Stein, a reporter for Israeli public broadcast network Kan, broke the news. Times of Israel reporter Raphael Ahren later confirmed it, citing “two officials familiar with the matter.”

The Jerusalem Post also said it has a source confirming that Crown Prince Khalifa is traveling to Washington on Monday to attend the ceremony on Tuesday where Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will formally establish relations.
