Israel Beiteinu MK Moshe Matalon called on Israeli to begin a tourism boycott on Turkey due to the detainment of Israeli tourists at the Istanbul International Airport Tuesday morning.

According to Matalon "The humiliating situations Israeli tourist endured this morning in Istanbul shows Israeli citizens in a singular way that they are not wanted in Turkey...There are enough places out their in Israel and in the world where Israelis are welcomed."

Matalon said there would soon be a Facebook page in order for the public to join the boycott.
