The first-ever Bahraini delegation to Israel touched down at Ben Gurion International Airport Wednesday morning.

Headed by Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif Rashid Al-Zayani, the delegation is being accompanied by Trump envoy Avi Berkowitz.

Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi (Blue and White) greeted the Bahraini delegation at the airport, saying he was "very excited" by the historic visit.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is slated to arrive in Israel later on Wednesday.

Al-Zayani is expected to meet with both Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Pompeo Wednesday.
