Palestinian, Bahraini protesters condemn normalization of relations with Israel

CA, 16 Sep 2020
Bahraini demonstrators took to the streets to protest against a deal that normalized relations between Bahrain and Israel on Monday, a day before the agreement was due to be signed at a White House ceremony on Tuesday.

With chants of "no to normalization" and "death to Israel, death to America," protesters marched through the streets of Barbar town, west of the capital Manama, to express their anger toward the U.S.-brokered agreement, which will reverse decades of ill will without a resolution to Israel's decades-old dispute with the Palestinians.

Plus, Palestinians held protests on Tuesday against the agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain normalizing relations between the countries.

In Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamist militant group Hamas, dozens of Palestinians rallied outside a United Nations office to condemn normalization with Israel, shortly before the signing ceremony began at the White House took place.

Israel on Sept. 15 signed the historic diplomatic pacts at a White House ceremony that U.S. President Donald Trump declared will mark the “dawn of a new Middle East,” casting himself as an international peacemaker at the height of his re-election campaign.
