The Dutch government’s consideration of issuing instructions to supermarkets to clearly mark products originating from West Bank settlements is not an attempt to bash Israel, only protect the consumer, Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said in parliament on Tuesday.

Timmermans was asked during a parliamentary questioning period about reports that the Netherlands was going to encourage retailers to specially label products from the settlements, with center-right parties voicing opposition, and the socialists coming out in favor.
