Bahrain's leading Shia cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, now living abroad, said he is against normalisation between Arab countries and Israel, and called on the region's people to resist.

In a speech published by dissolved Bahraini opposition party al-Wefaq, a group close to Qassim, he said the accords reached by Israel with the UAE and with Bahrain, and with any more countries to come, go against the will of the people.
