UAE-Israel deal: `Treacherous stab in back of Palestinians`

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become the first Gulf Arab country to reach a deal on normalising relations with Israel, capping years of discreet contacts between the two countries in commerce and technology.

Speaking as one, Palestinian groups Thursday slammed the new agreement between the UAE and Israel to normalize relations.

Hamas condemned the agreement, saying it does nothing to serve the Palestinian cause and ignores the rights of the Palestinian people.

The UAE peace deal with Israel is a "treacherous stab in the back of the Palestinian people," Hamas said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) stressed that the deal shows a vast conspiracy against the Palestinian people.

The Islamic Jihad Movement also decried the new deal, comparing it to a “surrender.”
