PM Shtayyeh hails Belgium’s decision to label Israel settlements’ products

Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh praised today the Belgian government’s decision to label products manufactured in Israeli settlements in the occupied territories.

In a statement, Shtayyeh expressed his thanks and appreciation to the Belgian government for this step, “which expresses its alignment with the values of truth, justice and freedom, and its rejection of settlements in the occupied territories, as it is contrary to international laws and resolutions.”

Shtayyeh called on friendly countries to follow the example of Belgium in labeling settlement products, announce their condemnation of settlement expansion, and adopt policies that would curb the settlers’ increasing attacks on citizens.

Earlier in the day, the Belgian government decided to mark the goods of the Israeli settlements, by placing clear labels on the products, clearly indicating that they were produced in Israeli settlements that are built on the occupied Palestinian territories.
