After popular anger the Maldives Parliament approves a law preventing Israelis from entering the country
-
On Monday, the Maldivian Parliament approved, by a majority vote, an amendment to a draft law prohibiting holders of Israeli passports from entering the country, and referred it to the Security Committee for review.

The draft law submitted by the Maldivian Democratic Party to the Council of Ministers, the country's main opposition party, stipulates that holders of Israeli passports will be prohibited from entering the Maldives.

He called on government and opposition representatives in Parliament to speed up the amendment process “in line with the desire of the government and the people.” After the final vote, all holders of Israeli passports, including those holding dual citizenship, will be banned from entering the Maldives.

At the beginning of this June, the presidential office in the Maldives announced that it had decided to make a legal amendment to prevent holders of Israeli passports from entering the country, following the escalation of popular anger in the Muslim-majority country due to the war in the Gaza Strip.

Since October 7, 2023, Israel has been waging a war on Gaza that has left more than 121,000 Palestinians dead or wounded, most of them children and women, and about 10,000 missing amid massive destruction and famine that claimed the lives of children and the elderly.

Israel continues its war despite a decision by the UN Security Council to stop it immediately, and orders from the International Court of Justice to end the invasion of the city of Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip, and to take measures to prevent acts of “genocide” and improve the miserable humanitarian situation in Gaza.
