Arabic press review: Bahrain suppresses protests against visit by Israel's Lapid

Bahraini security forces faced continuing protests on Saturday over the visit of Israel's Foreign Minister Yair Lapid to Manama, in the latest developments following the kingdom's normalisation of relations with Israel, according to Arabi21.

Those opposing normalisation said activists had staged spontaneous protests in Manama and that security forces had suppressed a demonstration on Sitra Island, south of the capital.

The Gulf Coalition to Resist Normalisation issued a statement saying that it rejected Bahraini officials' celebration of Lapid's visit on Thursday, during which he opened Israel's embassy in Manama and held talks with King Hamad Al Khalifa.
