The company announced that it would stop selling its products in the settlements

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned Ben & Jerry’s of “harsh measures” against boycotters, after the ice cream company announced it would stop selling its products in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The company recognizes international law that considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be illegal.

Bennett threatened the brand’s parent company, Unilever, that it would face legal and economic consequences as well as other consequences.

The company said Monday in a statement that selling its products in the West Bank and East Jerusalem was “inconsistent with our values,” something the Palestinians welcomed.
