Protests and rockets as Gulf states sign deals with Israel

At a White House ceremony on Tuesday, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain officially established diplomatic relations with Israel.

The signing of the US-brokered Abraham Accords formalizes decades of clandestine relations between Israel and the two Gulf states.

US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Emirati foreign minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his Bahraini counterpart Abdullatif bin Rashid Alzayani all spoke before the signing.

Al Nahyan and Alzayani also signed separate treaties with Trump and Netanyahu.

Bahrain’s was termed a “declaration of peace,” while the UAE’s a “treaty of peace.”

The four leaders signed copies of the documents in English, Arabic and Hebrew.
