Maan News Agency Published today 17:33

JENIN (Ma’an) — Activists in Jenin held a rally Saturday urging shopkeepers and residents to boycott Israeli goods.

The local campaign against the wall and settlements and the Independent Youth Movement organized the march, which toured the West Bank city’s streets.

Demonstrators held banners with slogans saying the boycott was a national and religious duty, and that buying Israeli produce was like buying bullets which would be used against Palestinians.

Coordinator Khaled Mansour said the rally was part of a series of events planned to empower people to boycott. Organizers were studying the reasons for the failure of previous campaigns, he added.

The rally ended in Abu Ali Mustafa square where speakers affirmed the need to support local produce as an alternative to Israeli goods and called on businessmen and investors to support the initiative.
