Yishai claimed that Sabri’s travel harms the security of Israel, and accused him of incitement.
Sheikh Sabri said that this decision is unjust, violates the basic principles of human rights, and violates the freedom of expression and the freedom of movement.
He added that the accusations against him as baseless and unjustifiable.
Sheikh Sabri further stated that he usually leaves the country after receiving invitations
to participate in academic and religious seminars that has nothing to due to Israel’s security.
He said that he would appeal the decision in an attempt to void it.
Sheikh Sabri is still unable to enter the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem due to an Israeli military decision issued against him six months ago.
