JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s deputy foreign minister says the government has decided to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen who support the international boycott movement from entering the country.

Tzipi Hotovely told Israel Radio in an interview Thursday (Aug. 15) that “Israel has decided not to allow” Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota to visit as planned.

Hotovely said the decision is in keeping with a policy of denying entry to those who advocate boycotts of Israel.
