Israel and Abraham Accord states are discussing a defense alliance to counter Iranian aggression, sources close to Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said Sunday as the Negev Summit in Sde Boker began. “Already in the first conversations, and on the background of security challenges in Europe, ideas were brought up to advance a regional security architecture that will build deterrence against threats from the air and sea,” a source said.

A defense alliance came up in Lapid’s first meetings at the historic meeting in Sde Boker, with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri and his Bahraini counterpart, Abdullatif Al Zayani. Sources at the meetings characterized them as warm and friendly. United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed and Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita also arrived at the summit on Sunday, as did US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who held meetings in Jerusalem and Ramallah earlier in the day.
