The United Nations human rights office has urged more than two hundred companies, mostly Israeli and American, so far doing business linked to illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, to avoid any complicity in pervasive violations against Palestinians.

In a statement, the UN office said supporters of the move to blacklist such companies insist that they must be held accountable for their activities in the settlements.
