20 Belgian Human Rights Organizations Start Campaign to Boycott Settlement Goods


Twenty Belgian human rights organizations announced a campaign to boycott goods of Israeli settlements in Belgium, and demanded the European Union to take concrete action to put an end to the occupation in Palestine.

The organizations said in a statement on Sunday that the Israeli occupation has not ceased grabbing Palestinian lands, which resulted in displacing the Palestinian residents, destroying their homes, and stealing their agricultural land and their water resources.


Japan pledges $200 million in aid for Palestinians

Japan has pledged more than $200 million in aid to help the Palestinian Authority, as representatives from 22 nations reiterated their support of the Palestinians’ quest for their own state.

The pledge was announced by Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida at the second Conference on Cooperation among East Asian Countries for Palestinian Development, held in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta on Saturday.

Kishida said the first disbursement of the aid — about $62 million — was expected later this month.

Ministers and high-ranking officials from 22 countries and five international organizations participated in the one-day conference, which was jointly chaired by Indonesia, the Palestinian Authority and Japan.
