The Palestinian Authority’s “anti-economic crimes unit” in Ramallah filed Sunday an indictment against two Palestinian companies that marketed Israeli products. The PA has banned the goods for sale in PA-controlled territories.

The names of the two Palestinian companies were not disclosed.

The indictment is based on the PA government’s decision to impose a ban on five Israeli companies. The PA decided to “punish” Israel in response to a similar Israeli ban on products from five Palestinian companies.

The banned Israeli companies are Tnuva, Strauss, Tara, Soglowek and Tapuzina.
