Meretz labeling bill will hurt Palestinians, factory owners in West Bank tell Gal-On

Legislation requiring that products from the West Bank be labeled as such will lead thousands of Palestinians to lose their jobs, the Shomron Settlers Committee wrote in a letter signed by West Bank factory owners to Meretz chairwoman Zehava Gal-On Tuesday.

The letter called on Gal-On to withdraw the proposal, or else, the factory owners said, they will have to start firing Palestinian workers.

“Your actions could bring massive economic chaos,” the letter reads.
