Minister Yuli Edelstein sharply criticized on Monday the twenty Israeli firms which have signed contracts in which they agree not to use products manufactured by Israeli companies in Judea, Samaria, northern/southern/eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights during the building of a new Palestinian Authority city.

“Those who start with boycotts will be boycotted themselves in the end,” said Edelstein. “The actions of these companies are disgusting. In exchange for money they cooperate with our enemies and contribute to the delegitimization of Israel, which harms its image as well as the very basis of its existence.”
