UK lists Jerusalem separately from Israel on COVID-19 travel advisory

UK (QNN)- Jerusalem has been listed as a separate entity from ‘Israel’ in the UK’s updated list of countries from where you can travel to England and may not have to self-isolate.

The CFI, Conservative Friends of Israel, expressed outrage, saying this decision is “offensive and hostile.”

“The announcement of a travel corridor with Israel is excellent news,” the CFI said. “However, the Foreign Office’s decision to define Jerusalem as a territory separate from Israel is offensive and hostile,” stated CFI in a statement.

“Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. To describe Jerusalem as anything other than an integral part of Israel is a fiction divorced from reality and the travel advice must be immediately corrected,” CFI added.

I urge the @FCDOGovUK & @transportgovuk to correct this. Jerusalem is Israel’s capital and should not be singled out like this

This is a nasty error from the FCDO official website, which is currently listing Jerusalem separately to Israel. @CFoI correct to be currently lobbying to get it corrected ASAP.

However, after calling on the UK’s Foreign Office to correct the travel advice, the Foreign Office has corrected it, listing Israel and Jerusalem together.

Absolutely inappropriate to list ‘Jerusalem’ as a separate country. We have taken this up with ⁦@FCDOGovUK⁩ this morning & they are urgently reviewing it.
