Democratic US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib sharply criticised Israel on Monday for denying them entry to the country and called on fellow members of Congress to visit while they cannot.
Omar, of Minnesota, suggested President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were suppressing the congresswomen’s ability to carry out their oversight role.
