UN representative in Gaza and West Bank declared persona non grata in Israel

Greater Middle East (bbabo.net), - Israeli ministers have declared Francesca Albanese, the UN special rapporteur on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, persona non grata in Israel after she said the victims of the October 7 Hamas attacks were not killed for that they are Jews, and “in response to Israeli oppression,” wrote the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Foreign Ministers Israel Katz and Interior Ministers Moshe Arbel stressed in a written statement that “the time when Jews remained silent is over.” They said UN leaders “must publicly condemn” comments by UN special rapporteur Francesca Albanese. “Blocking entry into Israel,” the statement continued, “may remind her why Hamas killed babies, women and young children,” Haaretz reported.
