Israel eyes UAE-Iran rapprochement with caution | JPost - Dec. 6, 2021 |

Recent regional developments have Israel worried, as some of its newfound allies are inching closer to its archrival Iran. 

The announcement by an Emirati official last month that a delegation from the United Arab Emirates is slated to visit Tehran in the near future is the latest cause for concern in Jerusalem. But, while monitoring events closely, Israel has faith in the ties forged with the UAE.

Still, relations in the Middle East can be fickle. What appears stable one day may experience upheaval the next.

"This is very worrisome for Israel," said Dr. Moran Zaga, an expert on the Gulf states from the University of Haifa and Mitvim − The Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies. "Rapprochement will come with a price. Getting closer to Iran and getting closer to Israel doesn't work together."
