The Embassy of Israel to the Kingdom of Bahrain marked Israel’s 75th anniversary on Wednesday night with a gala event in Manama.

The Israeli Independence Day reception in Bahrain’s capital follows the landmark 2020 Abraham Accords which saw four Arab countries, including the Gulf Kingdom, normalize relations with Israel.  

The government of Bahrain was represented at the event by Minister of Industry and Commerce Abdulla bin Adel Fakhro. The guest list included additional government officials, members of the academia and entrepreneurs.

The diplomatic reception featured an exhibition of photos taken by the Bahraini youth delegation that visited Israel last year.

Israeli Ambassador to Bahrain Eitan Na’eh emphasized the importance of the growing cooperation between the two countries’ private sectors and ties between their young generations.

Israeli President Isaac Herzog visited Bahrain last year on an official state visit.
