Bahrain: Trilateral UAE-Bahrain-Israel peace deal sparks protests in Al Daih

Protesters took to the streets of Al Daih, in northern Bahrain, on Tuesday, to protest

the trilateral peace agreement with Israel and the United Arab Emirates which was

signed earlier in the day, announced by US President Donald Trump.

The protesters could be seen marching with anti-Israel placards, chanting slogans

against the deal, while also stepping over an Israeli flag.

Earlier in the day at the White House in Washington DC, the peace deal was signed

by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah

bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Bahrain Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani. Trump

also took part in the ceremony.

The Israel-Bahrain treaty is set to establish diplomatic ties between the two countries

following a previous peace deal signed between Israel and the UAE earlier this month.

The agreements have triggered a severe backlash in parts of the Arab world including

in the state of Palestine.
