Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini Ambassador to Tel Aviv, Khaled Yousef Al-Jalahma, will arrive in Israel tomorrow (Tuesday) to officially assume his duties.
"The new Bahraini ambassador to Israel, Khaled Yousef Al-Jalahma, will arrive in Israel tomorrow on a Gulf Air flight, landing at Ben Gurion Airport," the Israel Broadcasting Corporation and Israel Army Radio said on Monday.
At the end of last March, Bahrain announced the appointment of Al-Jalahma as ambassador to Tel Aviv.
On May 29, Al-Jalahma took the legal oath before Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
On March 30, the King of Bahrain issued a decree establishing a diplomatic mission for his country in Tel Aviv.
Al-Jalahmah has been the Director of Operations at the Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 2017, and served as the Kingdom's deputy ambassador to the United States (2009-2013).
With his arrival, Al-Jalahma will become the fourth Arab ambassador in Tel Aviv, after the ambassadors of Egypt, Jordan and the UAE.
In mid-January, Israel appointed Itai Tagner as Chargé d'Affairs for the Israeli Embassy in Manama.
In September 2020, Israel and Bahrain signed an agreement to normalize relations between the two countries.
