The Tunisian parliament rescinded a no-confidence motion against two high-level government officials over their stated support for allowing entry to Israelis.

The two officials, Tourism Minister Amel Karboul and Deputy Interior Minister for Security Ridha Sfar, were accused of promoting “normalization” of relations with Israel over their declared support for opening the country’s gates to Israeli travelers.

The no-confidence measure was submitted to the parliament by the Islamist A-Nahda faction, which comprises 89 seats.
