Bahrain’s now-dissolved al-Wefaq, the main opposition group in the kingdom, condemned a deal to normalize ties with Israel as a “betrayal.”

“This repressive regime in Bahrain has no popular legitimacy,” deputy secretary general of al-Wefaq Society Hussein al-Dihi said, according to the party’s Twitter account.

“To our Palestine and our Jerusalem, they have betrayed you,” he said.

“We, the people of Bahrain … will not be with all this humiliation and disgrace led by some of the region’s regimes, and we will never be with them in their delusion and betrayal,” al-Dihi said during an address broadcast to a protest in Gaza.

“Israel is the first enemy of the peoples in our region and our Arab and Islamic nation,” al-Dihi added, calling on people in countries that have diplomatic relations with Israel to pressure their governments to sever ties.

A Bahraini court dissolved al-Wefaq National Islamic Society in 2016. It is a leading Shiite opposition group in the Sunni-ruled kingdom. Several of the group’s leaders are living in exile.
