Ireland's ambassador to Israel, Alison Kelly, was then called before the Foreign Ministry to explain the Lord Mayor's actions.

Sinn Fein city councillor Michael Mac Donncha claims he was unaware of the ban when he arrived in Israel on Tuesday night.

Netanyahu said that the Ramallah conference "featured prominent images" of Haj Amin al-Husseini, leader of a 1936 revolt against the British mandate over Palestine and grand mufti of Jerusalem. Israel had aimed to block his entry because of his support for the BDS movement that advocates boycotts against it.

Israel ordered a probe Wednesday into how Mac Donncha was allowed into the country.

The fate of the holy city is at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Mr Deri said an "inquiry is essential to avoid such breakdowns in future", adding that when Mr Mac Donncha heads home he will be given a letter forbidding him from entering Israeli territory in future.

The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said its deputy director-general for Europe, Rodica Radian-Gordon, expressed "her astonishment and deep disappointment" that the Lord Mayor chose to participate in "such a blatant anti-Israel event".

Dublin County Council has passed two anti-Israel resolutions recently one calling for the expulsion of Israel's ambassador to Ireland after several Gazans were killed by the Israeli military during protests.
