    Weeks after the United Arab Emirates agreed to a peace deal with Israel, Bahrain has joined the fellow Arab Gulf state in normalize diplomatic relations with the Jewish State, a statement released by the White House on Friday said. "This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East.

    The news of Serbia and Muslim-majority Kosovo opening their embassies in Jerusalem has triggered a new wave of anger within the Palestinian leadership. The Balkan nations moving diplomatic missions to the Holy City is an act of "unjust aggression against the Palestinian people,” the Palestinian Authority said in an official statement.

    Serbia and Kosovo have agreed to strengthen diplomatic and economic ties with Israel, the White House announced in a statement on Friday. Both countries, part of the former Yugoslavia, will relocate their embassies to Jerusalem, news reports said.

    The Palestinians are "deeply pained" to witness the flight carrying the first official Israeli delegation to the United Arab Emirates following the last month's historic peace agreement brokered by President Donald Trump, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said.

The UAE would be only the third Arab country, after Egypt and Jordan, to make peace and establish full diplomatic relations with Israel. Israel has agreed to "suspend" plans to "annex" sections of Judea and Samaria.

    While the world focuses on the COVID pandemic and China's shenanigans, a potential conflict has been brewing between Ethiopia and Egypt involving the waters of the Blue Nile. This month, Ethiopia completed the initial filling of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), a nearly $5 billion hydroelectricity project. The country plans to fill the rest of the dam over the next five years, a prospect that worries downstream Egypt, which depends on the Nile for freshwater.
