Turkish business world backs boycott of Israeli goods – The Daily Star

ISTANBUL: Turkish entrepreneurs are backing a boycott of Israeli goods in response to Israel’s recent military attack on Gaza which killed 815 Palestinians by Friday’s count.

A worldwide boycott can affect the Israeli economy, entrepreneurs from the Anatolian Businesspersons’ Association and Istanbul Commodity Exchange told Anadolu Agency Friday.

Municipalities from many regions of Turkey have called for the boycott of Israeli goods and urge the public not to buy them. They announced a list of goods produced in Israel or by companies closely linked to Israel through social media posts.

Istanbul Commodity Exchange Chairman Ali Kopuz said Muslims all around the world have been boycotting the products of Israeli origin to a degree that can leave permanent damage on the country’s economy.
