Bahrain summons envoy to Israel, suspends economic relations

Bahrain says it has recalled its ambassador to Israel and halted all economic ties with it.

In a statement, the parliament of the Gulf state said the moves were part of measures taken in support of “the Palestinian cause and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people”.

Bahrain, which established diplomatic ties with Israel in 2020, said the Israeli ambassador to Manama had already left.

The announcement came a day after Jordan said it had also recalled its ambassador to Israel to protest against the “catastrophe” amid Israel’s attacks.

Bolivia this week cut official ties with Israel over the war in Gaza while Chile and Colombia also recalled their ambassadors to Tel Aviv for consultations.
