The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has reportedly been forced to intervene in a dispute between the delegations of Israel and Lebanon at the Rio Olympics, according to the Jerusalem Post.
According to the report, the head of the Lebanese Olympic delegation, Salim al-Haj Nakoula, was “reprimanded” by the IOC for refusing to let members of the Israeli delegation board a bus the two groups were scheduled to share.
Al-Haj Nakoula called the incident a misunderstanding, according to the report.
The IOC committee warned the Lebanese delegation that they would not accept any more similar instances.
