Rouhani Bans Use of Israeli Products

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued an implementation order on Tuesday of parliamentary legislation passed last week that bans the use of any Israeli products in the country.

The ban includes technology, such as computer hardware and software, and was passed unanimously by Iranian lawmakers last week.

The legislation was passed "to confront the hostile acts of the Zionist regime against peace and security," and considers any cooperation with Israel an “act against god.”

Iran, which is known for its internet censorship, has in the past blocked Israeli technology such as Waze due to its origins. (VFI News)
