Canada imposes sanctions on Prominent Israeli Leaders

27 June, 2024 20:32

Amid the ongoing genocide in Gaza, Canada’s government has imposed sanctions on prominent Israeli leader, Haartz reported Thursday.

The sections were imposed on the Amana movement, one of the flagship organizations of the settlements in the West Bank, and on veteran settler Daniella Weiss, it said.

The new round of sanctions were imposed on Israeli individuals and entities “for their role in facilitating, supporting or financially contributing to acts of violence … against Palestinian civilians and their property,” according to Canada’s statement.

The Lehava movement and its founder Benzi Gopstein are also amongst those sanctioned.

This is the first time sections were imposed by any government on Amana – the main organization of settlers in the West Bank.

The movement is headed by Ze’ev Hever, who is a former member of the Jewish Underground.

The Jewish Underground is a terrorist organization that operated in the West Bank in the 1980s.

The organisation has been involved in the establishment of a large number of settlements and unauthorised outposts through its Binyanei Bar Amana subsidiary, it concluded.
