In the course of implementing normalization with the Zionist entity, Manama followed Abu Dhabi’s step in appointing an ambassador to the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian territories.

Zionist so-called Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi approved Bahrain’s first-ever ambassador to the Zionist entity on Tuesday, ahead of the Gulf state’s opening of its embassy in the occupied territories in the coming weeks.

In further details, Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani appointed Khaled Yousif al-Jalahama to the position on Sunday. Jalahama is the Director of Operations at Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry, and was deputy chief of mission at Bahrain’s Embassy to the US in 2009-2013.

Meanwhile, a Bahraini team is expected to arrive in the occupied lands in the coming weeks to set up an embassy in the Tel Aviv area.

“The Bahraini government’s decision to appoint an ambassador to ‘Israel’ is another important step towards implementing the ‘peace’ agreement and strengthening the ties,” Ashkenazi bragged.

During the call with Al Zayani, Ashkenazi thanked Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa for his courage and leadership in establishing full diplomatic relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

Bahrain announced in September that it was normalizing ties with the Zionist entity, less than a month after the United Arab Emirates did so, in the framework of the so-called ‘Abraham Accords.’

The Tel Aviv regime already had a secret diplomatic office in Manama, Bahrain’s capital, before the unashamed normalization was announced, and it became an embassy operating in the open in recent months.
