Palestinians have condemned Israel for barring two Muslim US congresswomen from entering the occupied West Bank.

Ashrawi also described Israel’s decision to bar Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as a dangerous precedent in defying diplomatic norms. Meanwhile, House Democrat Omar has called Israel's decision an insult to democratic values. She also slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for consistently resisting peace efforts, restricting the freedom of movement of Palestinians and hiding the brutal realities of the occupation. US President Donald Trump however has hailed Israel’s move.
