#BDS: Settlement-produced paper seized in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Printing paper produced in a settlement were seized from Hebron on Thursday.

Sources said the paper was produced in the illegal Atarot settlement in occupied East Jerusalem, and was held in a warehouse in Ar-Ram in Jerusalem, before being transferred to Hebron to be sold. The sources added that the owner would be prosecuted.

The Palestinian Authority announced a settlement boycott in early 2010, which includes a ban on working in settlements and trading in settlement-made goods. Shortly after President Mahmoud Abbas approved a new law that would punish traders with up to five years in prison and hefty fines for selling settlement products.
