Dozens of Palestinians protested in Gaza on Tuesday to denounce the historic diplomatic deals between Israel and two Gulf Arab nations.
US President Donald Trump is set to preside over the signing of agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and between Israel and Bahrain, in a Tuesday ceremony at the White House.
Ismail Radwan, a Hamas official at the protest in Gaza, said today marks “a day of rage for the Palestinian people.”
The protesters held up signs and chanted against normalization between the two Arab countries and Israel.
Trump will host more than 700 guests on the South Lawn to witness the sealing of the agreements.
The agreements will formalize the normalization of the Jewish state’s already warming relations with the two countries — and may pave the way for a broader Arab-Israeli rapprochement after decades of enmity.
