The United Arab Emirates has been the target of cyberattacks after signing a normalization deal with the Zionist regime of Israel.

Iran Press/Middle East: The UAE in August broke with decades of Arab policy when it agreed to forge ties with Israel in a move that angered Palestinians and some Muslim states and communities. Bahrain and Sudan have followed suit, although Sudan has yet to formalize the agreement.

During an onstage interview at a conference in Dubai, Mohamed Hamad al-Kuwaiti, the UAE's cybersecurity head said on Sunday that the normalization with Israel really opened a whole huge attack from some other activists against the UAE.

Kuwaiti said the financial sector was targeted but did not elaborate. He did not say if any of the attacks were successful or provide details on who the perpetrators were, according to a report by Reuters.

He also told the conference that the number of cyberattacks in the UAE increased sharply after the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan became only the third, fourth, and fifth Arab states to ever normalize their relations with Israel after Egypt and Jordan.

The Islamic Ummah considers this action a betrayal of the Palestinian cause.

Political experts believe that the normalization trend will have unprecedented geopolitical ramifications for the entire region.
