WASHINGTON (Dispatches) – The United States’ embassy in Bahrain’s capital of Manama has issued a security alert, reminding U.S. citizens in the kingdom "of the need for caution and awareness of personal security”.
"The Embassy encourages all U.S. citizens to review their personal security plans, remain aware of their surroundings, including local events, and maintain a high-level of vigilance”, the embassy said.
In guidelines for Americans in Bahrain, the embassy recommended that they "keep a low profile, stay alert in locations frequented by tourists/Westerners” and "avoid crowds and demonstrations”.
The security alert comes several days after Bahrain saw protests against the regime’s decision to join the United Arab Emirates in a U.S.-mediated deal with the Zionist regime to officially normalize their already covert relationship. The protests against the Bahraini regime’s treacherous move have been ongoing in Manama and other cities in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom for over a week.
The move by the two Persian Gulf regimes to normalize ties with the occupying regime has seen angry reaction, with countries like the Palestine, Iran and Turkey, slamming it as a betrayal of the Palestinian cause.
Bahrain and the UAE joined Jordan and Egypt in the list of Middle Eastern league of treacherous countries that have established formal relations with the Zionist regime. Jordan signed a ‘peace deal’ with the occupying regime in 1994, and Egypt established full diplomatic ties with the regime in 1980.
The recent statements made by U.S. President Donald Trump, who claimed that Kuwait could be the next country to establish direct diplomatic relations with the Zionist regime, have sparked outrage.
The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas reported, Monday, quoted governmental sources as saying that the Kuwaiti position on normalization with the Zionist regime is firm and unaltered, noting that Kuwait will not change its stance and refuses categorically to normalize relations with Israel.
The newspaper added that Trump’s recent statements were not made in light of his meeting with Sheikh Nasser Bin Sabah Al-Ahmad.
The sources stated that the Kuwaiti decision is a sovereign matter and will not change.
