Over a Dozen EU Countries, Including Israel's Allies, Petition for Labeling Settlement Goods

More than a dozen European governments have called for the labelling of goods produced in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Diplomats from 16 countries, including some of Israel's closest allies, signed a letter calling on EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to start the process. A European diplomat confirmed the authenticity of the letter. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was discussing internal EU affairs. Israel captured the West Bank from Jordan in the 1967 war.
