The Trump administration has just announced another Middle East breakthrough. Sudan and Israel will normalize ties. This is the third Arab nation to do so as a result of Trump’s efforts, in addition to the United Arab Emirate and Bahrain.

The Deputy Assistant to the President tweeted:

The step follows Sudan’s removal from the list of state supporters of terrorism:

The Jerusalem Post previously reported that the Palestinian leadership would view the opening of relations between Israel and Sudan as a disaster:

The possible normalization of relations between Israel and Sudan will have a negative impact on the Palestinian issue, Palestinian officials said Thursday.

Responding to reports that Sudan may become the third country in recent weeks to establish relations with Israel, after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, they said it would be another severe blow to the Palestinians….

“If Sudan joins the train of normalization with Israel, it will be another setback for the Palestinian issue,” a Palestinian Authority official told The Jerusalem Post. “It won’t come as a surprise, but Sudan will become the third Arab country to stab the Palestinians in the back and act in violation of Arab consensus and resolutions.”

The Times of Israel reports:

During a call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Suden Sovereign Council president General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and civilian leader and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, Trump brought reporters into the Oval Office and announced: “The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed to make peace.”

“We are expanding the circle of peace so rapidly with your leadership,” Netanyahu could be heard telling Trump, who responded by saying. “There are many, many more coming.”
