Bulgaria deports Hamas delegation 'due to Israeli pressure'

Bulgaria has deported a group of senior Hamas figures who were on an official visit in the country. Delegation member Salah Bardawil said local police arrived at the delegation's hotel and took the members to the airport with the intent of deporting them to Turkey.

 

According to Bardawil, the decision to deport the delegation was political and stemmed from pressure applied by Israel on Bulgarian authorities. (Elior Levy)
