Israeli media reported that Tel Aviv is in advanced talks with the Manams regime about normalizing ties, hours after the announcement on establishment of ties between the Zionist entity and the United Arab Emirates.
Israeli public broadcaster Kan quoted a senior official as saying that Bahrain is expected to be the next country to establish official ties with the Zionist entity.
A senior American official told Palestinian media that Bahrain and Oman are expected to normalize ties with Israel in the near future, the report also said.
The contacts with Bahrain were also reported by Israeli Army Radio, which said that multiple Israeli officials said they were in “advanced contacts” with Bahrain about the potential move.
Israel and the United Arab Emirates announced their agreement Thursday afternoon. They “agreed to the full normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE,” they said in a joint statement with the US that was released by President Donald Trump.
Bahrain welcomed the deal, describing it as a “historic step” that will contribute to “strengthening stability and peace in the region.”
