Activists have launched a new drive to tackle the increasing wave of normalisation with  the Israeli occupation in the Gulf, Al-Khaleej Online reported yesterday.

The Gulf Coalition Against Normalisation was launched as a result of the increasing ties with Israel which have seen officials from the occupation state make official visits to Gulf countries which do not have ties with it.

After Egypt and Jordan, which have forged peace deals with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, Qatar and Oman initiated official ties with the occupation state, including official meetings, participation in conferences, sports events and commercial activities.

Qatar Youth Against Normalisation, the Kuwaiti Movement for Boycotting the Zionist Entity and the Bahraini Normalisation Resistance Movement are among those that have joined the new coalition.
