Shaked revokes visa of leading Jordanian cleric accused of incitement

Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked says she has revoked a visa granted to a leading Jordanian cleric after he gave several inciting speeches while visiting Israel.

“The sheik’s entry visa was issued by COGAT,” she says referring to the military liaison with the Palestinians.

“Following the violation of the visa conditions and the serious incitement against the state, I ordered his entry into Israel to be prohibited,” Shaked says.

Sheikh Taraad Al-Faiz reportedly gave several sermons to Bedouin communities in which he incited against Israel and supported terror attacks during a visit last month.
