Israel’s Supreme Court upheld an Interior Ministry decision barring a group of French pro-Palestinian activists from entering Israel. The court said Jerusalem District Court Judge Moshe Drori had erred in overruling the ministry decision and allowing the activists to enter the country. In its ruling Sunday, the Supreme Court refrained from issuing deportation orders since 37 members of the group were planning to fly back to France on Monday, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported.
