Israel bars Palestinians from occupation photo show Dec 08, 2017 0 59 12345 Jerusalem Israel has barred 22 Palestinians from attending a Tel Aviv photo exhibition to mark 50 years of Israeli occupation of the West Bank, an Israeli rights group said on Thursday. B'Tselem, which organised the event with the support of the EU, said some of those barred were photographers and others were subjects of the portraits on display. The portraits are of 50 Palestinians born in 1967, the year that Israel seized the West Bank. The event was organised to mark International Human Rights Day. The EU ambassador to Israel, Emanuele Giaufret, attended a reception on Thursday for the exhibition, despite Israeli protests, B'Tselem said. On Monday, Israel bluntly criticised the European Union over Giaufret's plan to participate."For reasons unknown, the EU people believe that the way to Israelis' hearts is by spitting in their faces," Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.
