TEHRAN (IQNA) – Bahrain’s main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, once again condemned the normalization deal between Bahrain and the Zionist regime, saying it has hurt the feelings of Bahraini people.


In a tweet on Monday, the group’s political council, also slammed the start of direct flights from Manama to Tel Aviv.

It underlined that Bahraini people are against the sinister deal with the Zionist regime and believe that the Manama regime has acted upon the commands of its masters (the world hegemony).

The group called for a massive rally in Bahrain this Friday with the motto of “Friday of Resistance against Normalization”.

At a ceremony in Manama on Sunday evening, Bahraini and Israeli officials signed a joint communiqué establishing full diplomatic relations. The Manama and Tel Aviv regimes are now expected to open embassies.

The Israeli delegation, led by Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, flew on an El Al Israel Airlines charter flight from Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, to Bahrain and was accompanied by US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.

Following the signing, Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani said in a speech that he hoped for “fruitful bilateral cooperation in every field” between his country and Israel, asserting Manama supported the settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through dialogue.

Sunday’s meeting followed a September 15 ceremony at the White House when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed US-brokered normalization deals with the Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain's top diplomat.

The normalization deals have drawn widespread condemnation from Palestinians, who seek an independent state in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital. They say the deals ignore their rights and do not serve the Palestinian cause.
