Lazar Berman is The Times of Israel's diplomatic reporter

Bahrain’s Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad al Khalifa receives the kingdom’s newly appointed ambassador to Israel, Khaled Yousef al-Jalahmah.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry signed off on al-Jalahmah’s appointment in March. Al-Jalahmah previously served as deputy ambassador to the United States, among other senior posts in the Bahraini diplomatic service.

Bahrain has yet to establish an embassy in Israel and no date has been set for al-Jalahma’s posting to the Jewish state. Israel already has an operating embassy in Manama, the Bahraini capital.
