French Protest Import of Israeli Settlement Goods

Thousands of French protesters have rallied against the import of Israeli goods produced in Palestinian territories.

Monday's demonstration comes less then a month after the European Union's Court of Justice ruled that Israeli goods made in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank cannot be considered Israeli.

This means that those products cannot benefit from a trade deal giving Israel preferential access to EU markets.
