Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) warned on Wednesday that Bahrain could face “harsh revenge” from its own people along with the Palestinians after the kingdom decided to normalize relations with Israel.
“The executioner ruler of Bahrain should await the harsh revenge of the Mujahideen (Islamic fighters) aiming to liberate Quds (Jerusalem) and the proud Muslim nation of this country”, a spokesperson for the IRGC said in a statement, as cited by Reuters.
The statement called the decision to establish peace with Israel “a great folly and lacks any legitimacy and will receive appropriate responses”, echoing a condemnation previously voiced by the Iranian Foreign Ministry, that labeled the deal as “a shameful act that sacrifices the cause of Palestine”.
The move was also rejected by the Palestinian Authority, which denounced Bahrain’s decision as a betrayal of the Palestinians.
On Tuesday the UAE and Bahrain signed the Abraham Peace Accords with Israel at the White House in a ceremony hosted by US President Donald Trump.
