Palestinians held protests on Tuesday (September 15) against the agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain normalizing relations between the countries, under a U.S.-brokered agreement.
Protesters in Gaza burned posters of Gulf Leaders, U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In the occupied West Bank city of Hebron protesters also objected the normalization accord between United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel, which will be signed at the White House today, Tuesday (September 15), following a history of peace efforts between Israel, the Palestinians and their Arab allies that have failed to overcome decades of distrust and violence.
Most Arab nations have not recognized Israel or had formal diplomatic or economic relations with it because of what they regard as Israel’s thwarting of Palestinians’ aspirations for a state of their own.
