The Maldives President’s office said in a statement that President Mohamed Muizzu has decided to impose a ban on Israeli passports.

The country’s government will ban Israeli passport holders from entering one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations, the Maldives. The country’s president, Mohammed Muijzu, is going to make a decision to protest the massacre in Gaza.

The Maldives President’s office said in a statement that President Mohamed Muizzu has decided to impose a ban on Israeli passports. The cabinet decided to change the law barring Israeli passport holders from entering the country and set up a subcommittee to oversee the process.

However, it has not been announced when this ban will be imposed or when it will end. In addition, Muizzu also announced a national fundraising campaign called Maldives in Solidarity with Palestine. The Maldives lifted a previous ban on Israeli tourists in the early 1990s, and in 2010 the two countries took steps to restore relations. But efforts to normalize relations failed after the 2012 ouster of then-President Mohammad Nasheed.
