ABU DHABI (Dispatches) – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will officially inaugurate its embassy in the Israeli-occupied territory on Wednesday.
UAE ambassador to the occupied territories Mohammad al-Khaja will host the ceremony, about a year after the two sides reached a controversial normalization agreement which is denounced as a “betrayal” of the Palestinian cause.
The ambassador has been in the occupied territories since March 1.
In late June, Zionist foreign minister Yair Lapid inaugurated the regime’s embassy and consulate in Dubai.
The occupying regime and the UAE agreed to a U.S.-brokered deal to normalize relations in August 2020.
The UAE and Bahrain signed deals with the regime in a ceremony hosted by then U.S. president Donald Trump at the White House last September. The event was joined by Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Palestinians have condemned the accords as a stab in their back and a direct affront to their cause to liberate their lands from occupation.
Earlier this month, the website of Emirates Leaks said that some 5,000 Zionists had obtained UAE citizenship within the past three months after the law on granting citizenship in the Persian Gulf Arab country was amended.
Citing sources, the website of Emirates Leaks revealed there had been an influx of Zionists into the UAE, especially in Dubai and Abu Dhabi under the cover of investment.
