The Palestinian Authority has quietly restored its ambassadors to Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates this week, according to Wednesday reports in several media outlets.

The PA did not officially confirm the reports in Reuters, Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya, and the Palestinian news agency Maan.

Ramallah had recalled envoys to the Emirates in September, in protest of Abu Dhabi and Manama’s decision to normalize ties with Jerusalem, a move it decried as a “betrayal” of the Palestinian cause.

Once the UAE and Bahrain announced plans to normalize ties with Israel, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called both envoys back to Ramallah for consultations. The move, likely meant to exercise diplomatic pressure on the Gulf states, proved unsuccessful.

In mid-September, the Arab League struck down a draft resolution presented by the PA that would have condemned normalization with Israel.
