Defense Minister Visits Bahrain

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz landed in Bahrain Wednesday afternoon on a surprise unannounced visit. This historic visit comes amid heightened tensions in the Gulf after recent attacks by Iran-backed Houthi movement on the United Arab Emirates. Israel and Bahrain established historic diplomatic ties in 2020 as part of the Abraham Accords brokered by the Trump administration. Israel is working closely with many Gulf countries to prevent Iran from becoming more powerful in the region. Please pray for more cooperation between Israel and Gulf states as they seek a unified front against Iran. Please also pray that Israeli officials will confront the Iranian threat with great wisdom from the LORD.
