27 December 2018, at 12:00am

PALESTINE - The Palestinian government decided on Thursday 27 December to ban entry of Israeli vegetables, fruits and poultry into the Palestinian market following an Israel ban on import of similar Palestinian products

The cabinet said in a statement following its weekly meeting held in Ramallah that “in accordance with the principle of protecting the local produce and the Palestinian farmer in order to achieve the government's policy of supporting the steadfastness of the Palestinian farmers and in light of the unilateral Israeli decision to prevent the entry of Palestinian vegetables and fruits into Israeli markets, the government decided to prevent the entry of all kinds of vegetables, fruits and poultry into the Palestinian markets,” said the statement.

Israel took its action against the Palestinian produce after the Palestinians decided not to allow into their markets live sheep imported by Israelis in order to protect the local livestock farmers.
