Israel has agreed to sell drones and anti-drone systems to Bahrain, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper cites a senior Bahraini official saying that the Mossad and Shin Bet have been working with Manama in recent months to train its intelligence officers.

The same official told the Wall Street Journal that Israel has agreed to sell drones as well as anti-drone systems to the country.

Israel and Bahrain normalized ties in 2020 as part of the Abraham Accords.
