The Lebanese Ministry of Internal Affairs has banned the showing in theaters of a new American film "Miracle Woman" due to the fact that Israeli actress Gal Gadot starred in it, Haaretz reports. Israel regards Lebanon as a hostile state. It is separately noted that Gadot is a former serviceman of the Israeli armed forces.
Initially, the Lebanese authorities gave permission for the film, the premiere was scheduled for Wednesday evening. However, a few hours before the start of the show, a ban was introduced, and they were canceled.
Representatives of the film distribution company in Lebanon called this fact very sad and noted that the film is in no way connected with Israel. They also noted that the company suffered most from the ban, having already spent money on the advertising campaign and the organization of the shows.
In Russia, the premiere of the film "Miracle Woman" was held 1 June.
