Dubai Says Israelis Will Be Denied UAE Entry
Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim says the move comes after the killing of a Hamas operative in Dubai, blamed by the Emirates authorities on Israel's Mossad spy agency.
Tamim said a 26-member team used European and Australian passports to enter the country in January and kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
The Emirates will now "deny entry to anyone suspected of having Israeli citizenship," Tamim said at a security conference in Abu Dhabi Monday.
It was unclear if the measure would apply to Israeli athletes competing in international sports events being held there.
