(JNS) Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry on Sunday published a list of 20 groups affiliated with the BDS movement that will be barred from entering the country.
Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan referred to the list’s publication as “another step in our work to thwart anti-Israel boycott organizations.”
“The State of Israel will actively prevent such groups from spreading their falsehoods and odious methods from within the country,” he said.
The list’s publication comes after the Israeli Knesset last year passed legislation that denies entry visas to known BDS activists. The list will be enforced in March.
