(Israel National News) South Africa’s Department of Trade and Industry has announced that products produced by Israeli companies in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) cannot be labeled as products of Israel. Minister Rob Davies issued an announcement warning merchants “not to incorrectly label products that originate from the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) as products of Israel.”
The announcement follows a year-long campaign by pro-Palestinian Authority groups.
Denmark is planning a similar step, and will mark all products from Judea and Samaria with a special sticker. A minister explained the policy aims to give customers “full information” regarding products’ origins.
