UNHRC to blacklist companies working in WB settlements
Israel Hayom Hebrew newspaper revealed that the International Human Rights Council is about to blacklist of companies operating in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The newspaper, which is affiliated with Israeli government, expected on Tuesday that the blacklist, which BDS activists along with other bodies are working on, will probably be published in March or June. The blacklist includes security companies assigned to protect Jewish settlers, it highlighted.
The newspaper pointed out that the blacklist was suggested and prepared by the BDS activist Richard Falk about six months ago within his work in the UN. Arab countries as well are working on backing up the blacklist via Human Rights Council, it added.
