Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrived in Bahrain for the first-ever official visit by an Israeli head of government to the Gulf state.
Bennett’s visit is the latest following the US-brokered 2020 Abraham Accords, which defied decades of Arab consensus that ruled out ties with Israel in the absence of a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He is due to meet King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa.
Bahrain and its close ally the United Arab Emirates became only the third and fourth majority Arab states- following Egypt and Jordan- to establish ties with Israel.
