Information / Baghdad ..
A UN official warned 130 Israeli companies and 60 international companies that they could be blacklisted for their activity in West Bank settlements and violating international law.
According to Israeli sources, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid bin Raad al-Hussein, sent warning messages in recent weeks to the companies mentioned.
The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth revealed that it had obtained part of the black list, which includes 25 Israeli companies, some of them working in the field of food, and others working in medicines, and that these companies are operating in the settlements.
The Washington Post reported that companies such as Caterpillar, Tribedweiser and Airbank are among the US companies slated to be blacklisted.
These companies are considering responding to warning messages, some of which see their listing as economically damaging and damaging to their reputation. Some companies are also considering filing lawsuits against the Commissioner and the UN Human Rights Council. Ending / 25
