Palestinian traders clear shops of settlement goods

Aug. 29, 2010 10:58 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 1, 2010 10:47 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinian traders have submitted 25,000 applications for a Dignity medal to certify their compliance with the government ban on trading in settlement produce, an official said Sunday.

National Dignity Fund director Omer Qabaha said 8,000 traders have already received the medal, following inspections to check their stores are free of settlement goods.

Qababa praised merchants for their keenness to commit to the new policy, noting that they voluntarily requested checks on their shops. He urged traders who have not applied yet to do so promptly.

President Mahmoud Abbas banned the sale or purchase of settlement produce in the West Bank in April.
