      Israel Complains to Dutch Ambassador Over Boycott


      Israel’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday filed a formal complaint with the Dutch ambassador to Israel over the decision by Vitens, a Dutch water company, to cut ties with its Israeli counterpart Mekorot due to the company's presence in areas located beyond the 1949 Armistice lines.

      According to Kol Yisrael radio, the complaint said that the Dutch Foreign Ministry was creating an atmosphere that encourages a boycott of Israel. The complaint was filed with the ambassador during a meeting marking the conclusion of the visit to Israel of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
