Israeli PM vows to ‘act aggressively’ over Ben & Jerry’s ban
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke to the head of Unilever after its subsidiary Ben & Jerry’s announced it would stop selling its ice cream in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and contested east Jerusalem.
Bennett’s office quoted him on Tuesday as saying that Israel will “act aggressively” against the “clearly anti-Israel step.”
He also called the ice cream company’s decision a “boycott.”
