The Palestinian Authority, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, is planning to ban products made by six Israeli companies. Photo: World Economic Forum. – A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official, Mahmoud al-Aloul, said on Monday that the PA is planning to ban products made by six Israeli companies.

According to the Palestinian news agency WAFA, products manufactured by Tnuva, Osem, Elite, Prigat, Jafora-Tabori, and the Strauss Group will be banned in markets in the West Bank starting on Feb. 11.

Al-Aloul said that the decision to ban the products came in response to a “recent surge of Israeli violations,” including “the takeover of large tracts of Palestinian lands for settlement purposes and Israel’s illegal freeze of Palestinian tax revenues, collected on behalf of the PA.”

Israel has halted the transfer of tax revenue to the Palestinians in response to PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s decision to unilaterally join several international bodies, including the International Criminal Court.
