BULGARIA EXPELS HAMAS MPS UNDER ISRAELI PRESSURE

Muslim World

Bulgaria on 15 February expelled a visiting delegation from the Palestinian group Hamas, reports said citing the head of the organisation that invited the lawmakers to the EU-member state. Bulgarian security service agents “entered the hotel rooms of the three deputies early in the morning and drove them to the airport,” said Mohd Abuasi of the Centre for Middle East Studies. “The agents explained to them that they had to leave because of strong political pressure on Bulgaria from Israel,” he said, adding that they had departed for Istanbul.

The three Hamas lawmakers had arrived in Bulgaria on 14 February and were due to participate in a conference organized by the centre. Hamas, which rules in the Palestinian enclave Gaza, denounced the deputies’ expulsion. Hamas “denounces such behaviour which reflects the extent ... of Zionist pressure,” spokesman Taher Al-Nunu said in Gaza City. Previously, a Hamas delegation had visited Switzerland at the invitation of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, despite the protests of Israel.
