The Palestinian family of US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib said Friday they are against the outspoken politician's visit to the West Bank if it is under Israel's conditions.
"If Rashida's visit to her homeland is under conditions, we reject that," Tlaib's uncle Bassam Tlaib told The Associated Press.
"It's Rashida's right as a Palestinian to come and visit her family and country," he added.
Israel barred Tlaib and fellow Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar from visiting Jerusalem and the West Bank over their support for the international boycott movement, but said Tlaib could visit her relatives in the West Bank on humanitarian grounds.
The Interior Ministry released a letter purportedly signed by Tlaib in which she promised not to advocate boycotts during her visit.
But the congresswoman said Friday she won't visit her relatives in the West Bank.
In an official statement, Tlaib said "visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions meant to humiliate me would break my grandmother's heart."
Israel barred her and Omar following an unprecedented request from US President Donald Trump.
Tlaib and Omar had planned to visit Jerusalem and the Israeli-occupied West Bank next week on a tour partly organised by a Palestinian group.
The two are outspoken critics of Israel's treatment of the Palestinians and support the international movement boycotting Israel.
The two newly elected Muslim members of Congress have also sparred with Trump, who tweeted before the decision that it would be a "show of weakness" to allow them in.
Israel controls entry and exit points to the West Bank, which it seized in the 1967 Mideast war along with east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, territories the Palestinians want for a future state.
