OCCUPIED-AL-QUDS: The US will label exports from Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank as Israeli, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Thursday, in Washington’s latest move backing Israel’s authority over the Palestinian territory.

"All producers within areas where Israel exercises the relevant authorities... will be required to mark goods as ‘Israel’, ‘Product of Israel’, or ‘Made in Israel’ when exporting to the United States," Pompeo said in a statement.
