Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib banned from Israel

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu barred US Democratic congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from making a planned trip to Israel, shortly after US President Donald Trump called on his ally not to let them in.
Tlaib submitted a request to visit her family in the West Bank on humanitarian grounds which has been accepted by Israel with the provision that she not exploit her trip to promote a boycott against Israel.
