A lawmaker in the Maldives has submitted an emergency motion in the archipelago’s parliament, demanding a temporary ban on Israeli tourists, reported Sun news. 

Ahmed Shiyam, a member of parliament, said tourists from Israel should be banned until the latter cease its attacks against Palestinians. In the motion, he mentioned that Israeli forces attacked people who had been protesting against the illegal eviction of Palestinians. 

The MP also cited the attack on the Al Aqsa mosque and the subsequent bombings by Isreal on Gaza strip. 

“Israel’s actions have reached the pinnacle of inhumanity,” he claimed.  Israeli occupied forces strengthen the serial attacks targeting Gaza each Ramadan, and that scores of children, woman, and elderly have been martyred, washing the ground in Gaza with their pure blood with the adoption of the Dahiya Doctrine, which permits the indiscriminate killing of militants and civilians alike.

He said the archipelago and the international community at large are standing against the illegal settlement, being built by Israelis, on occupied territories with open disregard for international laws.
