Israel Signs U.S.-Brokered Deal Normalizing Relations with UAE and Bahrain

HeadlineSep 16, 2020

Israel has signed a U.S.-brokered deal to normalize relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. President Donald Trump presided over a White House ceremony with the three countries on Tuesday. Trump spoke before a crowd of several hundred people on the White House lawn, most of them sitting in close proximity without face masks, prompting concern from security for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who joined Trump for the ceremony.

Neither Netanyahu nor Trump mentioned the Palestinians in their remarks. Earlier in the day, Palestinian activists in the West Bank and in Gaza protested the agreements.
