The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

Israel’s FM Yair Lapid Arrives in Bahrain For First High-Level Meetings Since Abraham Accords

Israel’s Foreign Minister Yair Lapid arrived in Bahrain on Thursday, becoming the first high-level Israeli official to visit the country since Bahrain and Israel signed the Abraham Accords and normalized relations last year. Lapid was met on the tarmac by his Bahraini counterpart Abdullatif al-Zayani, who he later met to discuss economic, security, diplomatic, and civil issues. Lapid also met with Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, at his palace in Manama, believed to be his first meeting ever with an Israeli official. Lapid also will inaugurate Israel’s embassy in Manama during his visit. Also on Thursday, the first commercial flight between Bahrain and Israel, from Gulf Air, landed at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.
