Spain, Italy warn citizens regarding investments in Israeli businesses in West Bank

Italy and Spain recommended on Thursday that their citizens seek legal counsel before initiating business deals with companies working in the Israeli-administered West Bank.


The announcement echoes a similar statement released by the French Foreign Ministry earlier in the week, in which it called on French citizens to consult legal experts before investing beyond the Green Line. A senior Israeli diplomat told Ynet that the tally of major European powers to take such a step reached 5, including the UK and Germany. (Attila Somfalvi)
