Lebanon has banned the new film "Wonder Woman" because the lead actress, Gal Gadot, is Israeli.

A six-member committee from the Lebanese government's Ministry of Economy decided to ban the film just hours before it was supposed to premiere there, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Lebanon's Grand Cinemas tweeted the news of the ban.

The group Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon had pressed for the ban after trying unsuccessfully to get "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," also featuring Gadot, banned last year.

Lebanon and Israel are officially at war. Gadot, who won the Miss Israel title in 2004, served her mandatory two years of service in the Israeli army. The Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon noted that she has posted on Facebook in support of the Israeli army, including the 2014 Israeli action in Gaza.

"I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens. Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children," Gadot wrote in 2014.

Variety reported that "Wonder Woman" had already gone through Lebanon's censorship procedures, and a sneak peek was shown on Wednesday evening. The Associated Press noted that while Lebanese citizens enjoy greater freedom of expression than in other Middle Eastern nations, censorship takes place with content relating to homosexuality, religion and Israel.
