New BDS Campaign Against Companies Operating in WB Settlements
Local Editor

As part of the international campaign to face the "Israeli" occupation to Palestine, pro-BDS and Palestinian activist groups are to begin an intensive campaign against "Israeli" and foreign companies that are operating in the apartheid entity's settlements in the West Bank.

Pro-BDS rally

The announcement comes one day after it was revealed that the UN's Human Rights Commissioner has been sending letters to 150 companies in "Israel" and around the world the past two weeks, warning that they are about to be added to a blacklist of companies doing business in "Israeli" settlements in the West Bank and in Occupied east Al-Quds.

Describing the step as courageous, the activists applauded the UN's decision, and said that the Palestinians must do what they can to exploit the blacklist.

The revelation came the same day that Palestine was voted in as an Interpol member country after 75 countries voted in favor of admitting them to the international police organization.

Meanwhile, senior "Israeli" officials warned that the fear of divestment or scaled-down business due to the blacklist is already becoming a reality. The so-called "Israeli" economy Ministry's Office of Strategic Affairs has already received information that a number of companies who received the letters have responded to the human rights commissioner by saying they do not intend to renew contracts or sign new ones inside the apartheid entity.
