Israel’s Supreme Court has given an Israeli-Arab writer permission to visit Beirut to attend an Arab writers’ conference.

Ala Halihal from the northern Israeli city of Akko appealed to Israel’s Supreme Court after Interior Minister Eli Yishai refused to allow the trip. Asked by the court to respond to the petition, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he also opposed the visit, Haaretz reported.

It is illegal for Israeli citizens to visit Lebanon, which is considered an enemy country.
