Bulk329JAKARTA (PNIC):-Indonesia has cancelled visas issued to Israeli citizens and decided to ban Israelis from entering the country in response to Gaza incidents, spokesman for Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Emmanuel Nahshon said.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, the ban came into effect last week. Indonesia has also strongly condemned Israel's brutal actions against Palestinians during recent border events in Gaza.

Nahshon said in press statements that Israel is currently trying to reverse Indonesia's decision.

Israel has no formal diplomatic relations with Indonesia, but the two countries maintain economic ties, so Israelis can visit Indonesia using temporary tourist and business visas.

The Israeli occupation army on 14th May killed 65 Palestinians and injured 3,244 while they were protesting peacefully near Gaza's border fence with the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories.
