Libya says UAE’s deal with Israel is “betrayal”

The member of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohammed Emmari Zayed said the agreement reached Thursday between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel to normalize relations is a form of betrayal.

Speaking to Al-Jazeera TV, the member of the Libyan Presidential Council said “this is a betrayal of the UAE state that doesn’t surprise. With its destructive role in Libya, Syria and Yemen, it is a natural result of the embargo imposed on Qatar, Palestine and the independent nations of the region.”

Israel and the UAE have agreed to normalize relations, US President Donald Trump said Thursday, with Tel Aviv agreeing to delay its controversial plans to annex large swathes of the occupied West Bank.

Zayed described the UAE’s step as “another stab in the back of the Muslim Ummah,” saying the recent losses of the “Ummah” as a result of this policy of the UAE are much higher than the Zionist regime killed and displaced in the last 50 years.
