The Palestinian Authority as well as the Hamas terror group have both lambasted the Israel-Bahrain normalization accord as another “stab in the back” and act of “aggression” by an Arab country.
Turkey and Iran have also condemned the deal.
“This step is a token of support for legitimizing the ugly crimes of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people,” a statement by the PA said.
The agreement was “a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people,” similar to the UAE-Israel deal announced last month, Ahmad Majdalani, social affairs minister in the West Bank-based PA, said according to AFP.
“This is another stab in the back of the Palestinian cause, the Palestinian people and their rights,” Wasel Abu Yousef, a senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization added. “It is a betrayal of Jerusalem and the Palestinians… We see absolutely no justification for this free normalization with Israel.”
