EU Urged to Stop Trade with West Bank Settlements

Nations do much more business with Jewish settlers than Palestinians living there

|

A coalition of 22 non-governmental organisations has called on the European Union to ban products from Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

EU member states import 15 times more goods from settlers than from Palestinians living there, they say.

They want a range of measures adopted to stop assisting settlement expansion, including produce labelling guidelines.
