Bahrain is likely to follow the UAE in signing a peace agreement with Israel, Hebrew Public Broadcaster Kan reported Israeli official revealing on Friday.
Kan quoted an unnamed Israeli official as saying: “Bahrain is expected to be the next country, which will establish official relations with Israel.”
No time frame was specified, or further details given, although the report by the broadcaster also mentioned that a senior US official told Palestinian media that Bahrain and Oman are expected to normalise ties with Israel in the near future.
Bahrain was the first Gulf state to officially comment on the diplomatic move between the UAE and Israel.
According to the Bahrain News Agency, Manama welcomed the peace agreement and extended its congratulations to the UAE for “taking steps to enhance the chances for Middle East peace”.
Jared Kushner, a senior adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump also hinted that another Arab country could make a deal with Israel “in the coming days.”
