Campaign attacks Doueiri for filming in Tel Aviv

BEIRUT: The Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel in Lebanon denounced director Ziad Doueiri’s film that is set to be released in May, saying the production violated boycott rules.

The campaign Friday criticized Doueiri for shooting his film “The Attack” in Tel Aviv with help from Israeli actors and producers. The campaign called on artists to boycott Israel and expressed surprise that General Security would allow the film to be screened in Lebanon.
