Israel, Bahrain to ink water desalination deal
Israel’s national water company Mekorot will sign its first deal to provide Bahrain with water desalination technology, Israel Hayom reported yesterday.
“The deal will be the first of several deals that will be concluded with Bahrain and the UAE,” the news site added, citing Mekorot’s CEO Eli Cohen.
The deal comes as a result of normalisation deals between Bahrain, the UAE, Sudan and Morocco, and Israel last year. The agreements were slammed by Palestinians officials.
