After multiple delays, Netanyahu said looking to visit Gulf before elections

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is looking to visit the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain before the March 23 Knesset elections, Walla news reports.

The trip has already been postponed a number of times.

The Walla report quotes senior Israeli officials saying that efforts are currently underway to set a date for the trip within the next two weeks.

Sources in the Emirates, however, have in recent weeks expressed concern that such a visit would be an intervention in the Israeli elections, the report adds.
