Arab League Assistant Secretary-General for Palestinian affairs Mohamed Sobeih on Tuesday called for activating an Arab boycott of Israeli products.
Speaking at a meeting at the Cairo-based Arab League, Sobeih said the Arab boycott of Israeli products "will enhance Palestinian steadfastness", Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reported.
"The boycott...is a political message that reflects rejection of [any] violation of international law, the UN Charter and UN resolutions," he said.
Sobeih noted that Israeli banks fear an Arab and international boycott.
"This is a step forward...and sends a message against a rogue state," he said.
The meeting is expected to forward recommendations to the Arab foreign ministers, who are scheduled to meet on Sept. 10.
Peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians collapsed last year over Israel's refusal to release a group of Palestinian prisoners despite an earlier pledge to do so.
