A Likud lawmaker on Thursday submitted a bill that would require retailers to apply warning labels to products that are manufactured in countries that are calling for a boycott of Israel.

The "a label for a label" initiative is Likud MK Miki Zohar's response to a European campaign to mark Israeli products that are made in territories that Israel captured in the 1967 Six-Day War.
