Israel said it will bar the entry of seven European officials due to their efforts to promote boycotts of the Jewish state.

The officials, who are all French, are part of a larger delegation of 20 European dignitaries scheduled to visit Israel and the disputed territories from Nov. 19-23. They had announced that one of the primary goals of the trip was to meet high-profile Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti, who is currently serving five life sentences in an Israeli jail, as well as offer support for other Palestinian prisoners.
