We hear that Israel and Lebanon do not like each other. And now, the hatred has been taken beyond politics.

It has now entered entertainment as Lebanon has banned Wonder Woman from its cinemas because the lead character is played by Israeli actress, Gal Gadot.

According to reports, the Lebanese interior ministry banned the film few hours before it was due for release. The decision was based on a recommendation from the General Security Directorate.

It is worth adding that before the General Security Directorate made the submission, a formal request to ban Wonder Woman had been made by the Ministry of Economy and Trade, which implements the Lebanese policy to boycott Israeli products.

This decision to ban the film may be due to the fact that Gal Gadot was formerly in the Israeli army and reports show that both nations are officially at war but have observed a ceasefire since 2006.

Anyway, that is their p. Cannot wait for Wonder Woman to hit Naija cinemas!
