First of its Kind: UAE, Bahrain Channels Share Live Broadcast with Israeli Channel

News channels from the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel shared a live broadcast for the first time in history after the two Arab Gulf states signed treaties normalizing ties with Israel on Tuesday.

“After the signing of the peace deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, we witness the first TV broadcast of its kind between an Emirati channel, Dubai TV, an Israeli channel, Channel 12, and a Bahraini channel, Bahrain TV,” Dubai TV presenter Mohammed al-Kaabi said at the start of the broadcast.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed agreements with Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani.

The UAE was the first Gulf country, and the third in the Arab world, to normalize ties with Israel, and Bahrain announced shortly after it would follow the UAE’s lead.
