Report: Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad leaders denied entry to Tunisia

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Representatives for Hezbollah and the Islamic Jihad movement were denied entry to Tunisia Saturday where they were scheduled to attend a conference against Zionism, reports said.

Abu Imad al-Rifai, who represented the Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine, and Hasan Izz al-Din of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement were denied entry to Tunisia via Carthage airport, a report by the German News Agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur said.

The Tunisian authorities did not give any reason for their deportation, according to the report.

The two were set to partake in a conference entitled "National Sovereignty and Resistance within the Arab Movements," scheduled to be held in Tunis Saturday. They had been invited by a coalition of Tunisians against Zionism.

The two had previously been allowed into Tunisia after the 2011 revolution, when "they joined political and intellectual activities," the report said.
