Palestinians in Ramallah urge boycott of Israeli goods

Palestinians in Ramallah urge boycott of Israeli goods
Hundreds of Palestinians, including lawmakers, held a demonstration in the occupied West Bank Saturday, calling for the boycott of Israeli products.

According to Press TV, marching through the streets in Ramallah City, the demonstrators urged people worldwide to unite against the Tel Aviv regime and put an immediate embargo on Israeli goods.

The demonstration was part of a campaign that is a coalition of worldwide organizations established a decade ago, which advocates Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, known as the BDS movement.

Thousands of volunteers worldwide have joined the BDS ever since to help promote the Palestinian cause.

The demonstration in Ramallah came amid a surging wave of violence in the West Bank, where about 190 Palestinians have been martyred in clashes with Israelis over the past few months. The violence, which erupted in early October 2015, has also killed more than two dozen Israelis.
