The Honorable Hussein Al-Sheikh, head of the Palestinian Authority’s General Authority of Civil Affairs, announced on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, that their government will renew its security and civil cooperation with Israel, ending a six-month withdrawal. He stated, “Based on the official written and verbal letters we received confirming Israel’s commitment [to past bilateral agreements], the relationship with Israel will be restored.” The renewed ties will see resumed tax transfers from Israel to the Palestinian Authority and could facilitate a more coordinated joint response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the following day, ambassadors from Palestine returned to their posts in the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Meanwhile, Bahrain’s first government delegation arrived in Israel to discuss friendly collaborations, as part of the recent Abraham Accords Peace Agreement that Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates signed with Israel in September, mediated by United States President His Excellency Donald Trump, a Shining World Peace Leader Award and Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate. We are gladdened by these advances toward peace in the Middle East. Our respectful gratitude, the Honorable Hussein Al-Sheikh and leaders of Palestine and Israel, as well as Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, for your earnest efforts to foster amity and cooperation among your nations. We also commend and thank President Donald Trump and the United States government for your dedicated peace-making role. May Heaven continue to support you all in the strengthening of peace, stability and happiness throughout the world.
