The Algerian Olympic Committee withdrew the accreditation of Nourine and her trainer Amar Benikhlef and sent them home after the Tokyo Games.
The IJF, which had temporarily suspended Nourine and Benikhlef, said the couple used the Games “as a platform to protest and promote political and religious propaganda”, in violation of its code of ethics and Olympic Charter.
The incident was not the first time that Nourine has withdrawn from the competition to avoid facing an Israeli opponent. He withdrew from the 2019 World Championships in Tokyo for the same reason.
Tensions in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have erupted again this year as clashes in disputed Jerusalem sparked cross-border clashes.
