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.

Lord Mayor Micheal Mac Donncha entered Israel on his way to the West Bank for a conference Wednesday night on the disputed status of Jerusalem.

Deputy director general Rodica Radian-Gordon "expressed her amazement and deep disappointment at the fact that the mayor chose to participate in a blatantly anti-Israel event", the ministry said in a statement.

MacDonncha, who is in Ramallah for a conference, was singled out by Israel's Strategic Affairs Ministry - which oversees the fight against the BDS campaign - for his apparent links with the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Israel's foreign ministry has summoned the Republic's ambassador to express dismay over Dublin's Sinn Fein mayor attending an "anti-Israel" event in Ramallah.

Israel expects a "public and formal" response from the Republic to his conduct, it said.

Mr Mac Donncha has criticised Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
