'Severe consequences': Iranian president blasts UAE and Bahrain over Israel agreements

According to the HFAC statement, the proposed resolution "supports the normalization agreements; calls for further people-to-people diplomacy to ensure the sustainability of these agreements; calls on other Arab and Muslim states to support normalization and peace with Israel; reiterates the House's support for U.S. law related to Israel's qualitative military edge; and reaffirms its strong support for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resulting in two states - a democratic Jewish State of Israel, and a viable, democratic Palestinian state - living side-by-side in peace, security, and mutual recognition".

"We say to the Bahraini regime and the Emirates that this normalisation is a total betrayal of the Palestinian cause and the hopes of the Arab nation", said Ahmad al Medalal, an Islamic Jihad official in Gaza.

Hamas released a statement shortly after the rockets were fired blasting the peace deals.

On today's Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed the Palestinian response to the Israeli peace agreements.

Saudi Arabia has remained silent on the move to recognize Israel without a deal with the Palestinians and much of the Arab world is suspicious, but the UAE foreign minister heralded the deal.

However, critics said the countries who signed the pact were willing to "throw Palestine under the bus" because of fears about Iran and its growing influence.

One hit the southern port city of Ashdod, wounding at least two people, emergency services said.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the "Abraham Accords" an opening for more such agreements.


"They want to turn back the peace".

The landmark agreements prompted demonstrations on Tuesday in both Gaza and the occupied West Bank. "Everyone who was there understood that we made a historic turning point for the State of Israel and for peace".

The agreement puts a timely end to UAE's economic boycott of Israel, thereby opening the doors for the USA to sell advanced weaponry to the Arab nation, which has had its heart set out on acquiring the prestigious Lockheed Martin F-35 fifth-generation fighters.

"Peace, security and stability will not be achieved in the region until the Israeli occupation ends", he said.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani said Israel is "committing more crimes in Palestine every day".

The Trump administration helped broker the deal, which is the latest in a series of peace negotiations in the Middle East.

While the debate over whether the United States will allow United Arab Emirates to purchase the Lockheed Martin-built F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter continues, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) remains the sole operator of the fifth-generation stealth aircraft in the Middle East.

Hamas has ruled Gaza since 2007, when it seized power from the internationally backed Palestinian Authority.
