UK government issues warning over doing business with Israeli settlements

“The UK government has realised that its condemnations of illegal settlements are falling on deaf ears, and has started to address the huge amount of economic support that the illegal settlements receive from UK businesses,” said Rafeef Zia…dah, of the Palestinian BDS national committee.UY
But, she added, the guidance needed to go further. “It isn’t enough to simply warn businesses about the economic and legal risks of doing business with settlements. The UK government and all EU member states have a duty to take a proactive approach to preventing businesses from contributing to Israeli violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.”
