Bahrainis protest Israeli FM visit to Manama

People of Bahrain on Thursday night protested against the visit of the Israeli Foreign Minister by carrying placards against the Zionist regime.

Iran PressMiddle East: Bahrainis reiterated their strong opposition to the normalization of relations with the Zionist regime, chanting slogans such as "Get out of Bahrain," "Down with Israel, "No Israeli embassy in Bahrain".

In defiance of Bahraini people’s vehement opposition, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid arrived in Bahrain to mark the first visit to the small Persian Gulf country by a senior Israeli official a year after the signing of the so-called Abraham Accords to establish diplomatic relations.

Lapid’s visit to Bahrain is aimed at advancing the US-pushed normalization deals between Israel and a number of Arab countries, including the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. He was set to open the Israeli embassy in Manama.

The Israeli top diplomat has already opened the Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi and promised to establish the regime’s embassy in Rabat soon. However, Sudan’s foreign minister said over the weekend that her country has no plans to open an Israeli embassy in Khartoum.

Palestinians have denounced the normalization agreements with Israel as a "stab in the back" of their cause.

Across the region, the agreements have provoked a furious backlash, with people condemning the Israeli regime’s continued atrocities against Palestinians and slamming as “treacherous” any ties with the regime.
