The Israeli Supreme Court froze, on Sunday, deportation measures against American student Lara al-Qasem, who was barred entry to Israel over alleged ties to the BDS movement.

The court will convene on Wednesday, to determine whether or not it will grant Al-Qasem permission to file an appeal against her detention and denial of entry.

Al-Qasem, who is an American citizen of a Palestinian origin, was accused by the Israeli occupation of involvement in the BDS movement.

On Friday, the Tel Aviv¬†District Court rejected her previous appeal, saying it could not justify intervening in the case, and that the government’s decision to detain her was reasonable.

The court echoed a previous decision by an administrative appeals court.

Lara Al-Qasem, 22, has been detained at Ben-Gurion Airport for the last two weeks, Days of Palestine reports.
