The two Democratic U.S. lawmakers who Israel has blocked from entering the country did not plan "a balanced visit" with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders, the U.S. ambassador to Israel said in a statement on Thursday backing the decision.

Ambassador David Friedman, in a statement following Israel's decision to block U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, also accused the lawmakers of supporting "economic warfare" against Israel via boycotts.
