Jordan bans entry of Israeli settlements’ products

"AMMAN –– The government has banned the entry of Israeli goods manufactured in Jewish settlements in occupied Palestinian territories.
In a circular, signed by Minister of Industry and Trade Hani Mulki on March 2 to the Jordan Customs Department (JCD), the government listed the names of 220 Israeli companies and factories that operate fully or partially in the illegal settlements.
The circular, posted on JCD website, asked the department to take necessary measures to prevent the products of these firms from entering the Jordanian market.
The decision was taken after the Arab League mission in Germany sent a document to the diplomatic missions of Arab countries in Berlin listing the names of Israeli firms and factories operating in settlements, which the league described as a clear and deliberate violation of international laws and resolutions."
