Israel, UAE and Bahrain sign peace
The moment was defined "historic"
The long-awaited signature finally arrived. Yesterday, on Tuesday September 15, 2020, Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed an important peace agreement in Washington (read also the article published by AVIONEWS); US President Donald Trump called the day "historic", speaking enthusiastically of "dawn of a new Middle East". Representatives of Bahrain also participated in the signature (see AVIONEWS). Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and foreign ministers of the two Asian Nations arrived in United States.
The goal is now to extend peace to other Arab countries as well. Trump himself was thanked for his "firm leadership" and his efforts to reach the fundamental understanding. Meanwhile, on the sidelines of this historical moment some rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip against Israel, to be precise towards the localities of Ashdod and Ashkelon. There were two missiles, as well as lightly injured from the shrapnel. Shortly before the Washington ceremony, White House caused some friction by talking about the possible sale of F-35 military aircraft to United Arab Emirates, an option that does not fully convince Tel Aviv (as also detailed by AVIONEWS).
