Deri bans French mayor from Israel

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri instructed that the Mayor of Gennevilliers, France, not be allowed into Israel. The Mayor arrived at the Allenby Bridge Crossing with his wife Monday.


Last November, he took part in a delegation of mayors who wanted to visit Israel in order to meet with security prisoner Marwan Barghouti. He is also a supporter of BDS.
