Eitan Na’eh, Israel’s first ambassador to Bahrain, presented his credentials to King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa at Tuesday’s ceremony at the Al-Sakhir Palace.

“It is an honor for me to hand over my credentials to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the King of the country, may God protect him, as the first ambassador of the State of Israel to the Kingdom of Bahrain,” Na’eh wrote in Arabic to his Twitter account.

Na’eh tweeted a video of the honor guard that greeted the Israeli ambassador as he arrived at the palace.

Israel’s national anthem was played by the Royal Orchestra, reported i24News.

The ceremony came over a year after the signing of the Abraham Accords that established relations between Israel and Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and later Morocco, and Sudan.
