The number of tourists visiting Israeli settlements in the West Bank reportedly doubled this past weekend following Airbnb’s decision to delist lodgings in the communities.

According to a segment aired on Army Radio on Wednesday, the number of visitors jumped from 1,500 to 3,000.

The segment also cited owners of B&Bs in the settlements as reporting a surge of interest in their offerings following the Airbnb move last Monday to remove 200 listings.

“Rather than wrecking tourism in Judea and Samaria, Airbnb is only making us stronger, with its ridiculous and antisemitic decision,” Samaria Regional Council chief Yossi Dagan told Army Radio.
