Maldives to ban entry of Israelis due to war on Gaza

The Maldives government has decided to bar Israelis from entering the Indian Ocean country, known for its luxurious resorts, due to the war on Gaza.

The country’s president’s office announced on Sunday that the Cabinet has changed the laws to prevent holders of Israeli passports from entering the Muslim-majority country and has established a subcommittee to supervise the process, according to the official website of the presidency in the Maldives.

The office said that President Mohamed Muizzu will also appoint a special envoy to assess Palestinian needs, and launched a fundraising campaign to aid Gaza through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

He further decided to organize a national march under the tagline “Maldives stands in solidarity with Palestine” as a show of support Gaza’s struggle.
