Palestinian groups held a protest in the Gaza Strip against any move to normalize ties with Israel. They condemned the United Arab Emirate and Bahrain for establishing relations with Israel as a stab in the back of Palestinians.
The Palestinian groups also blamed the Arab League after its failure to condemn the Israeli- UAE and Bahrain deals to normalize ties that came at the expense of Palestinian rights. They also called on Arab states to protest against these agreements.
The UAE and Bahrain justified their deals with Israel as a means to stop the annexation plans in the West Bank and bring peace to the region. This comes as Israel is still going ahead with its expansion plans despite the deals.
Observers say Palestinians’ anger over the recent normalization of ties will persist as long as the Arab League fails to condemn these relations. People here view the recent normalization as a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause, saying they won’t sit idle.
