Palestinian government bans some Israeli products

Move follows Israeli authorities stopping Palestinian agricultural produce from being sold in Israel.

    The Palestinian government is banning some Israeli goods from its markets after Israel stopped Palestinian agricultural produce from being sold.

    The tit-for-tat accelerated after the Palestinians decided to limit the number of cattle imported from Israel.

    That move was part of a pilot programme to reduce Palestinian dependence on the Israeli economy.
