The ruling party in South Africa urged the country’s citizens not to visit Israel unless they are in solidarity with the “Palestinian struggle.”

While similar calls have been made in the past by African National Congress party ministers, there reportedly was a “strong consensus” on the matter at the party’s midterm conference held in Johannesburg over the weekend.

The party’s International Relations Committee resolved to “conscientise[sic] South Africa’s young people, leaders and public representatives not to travel to Israel,” the South African news website IOL.co.za reported.
