An Israeli delegation will be heading to the UAE to meet with top officials this week Israeli media reported a day after a peace deal was declared between the former foes.

Haaretz reported Channel 12 as saying that a senior Israeli official would lead the team, with Ynet News naming him as Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, who, according to Haaretz, has been leading the normalisation efforts over the past year.

Haaretz reported the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office saying that National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat would lead the preparations for the talks “in coordination with all the relevant parties”.

The Israeli daily reported a senior Israeli official telling Israeli public broadcaster Kan that Bahrain is expected to sign a peace deal with Israel next.
