Dutch company terminates involvement in project in East Jerusalem in view of possible conflict with international law
The Dutch company Royal HaskoningDHV has terminated its involvement in a sewage construction project in East Jerusalem because it would violate international law. It was earlier reported that the Dutch government had advised the company to withdraw from the project in view of the possible conflict with international law. The Palestinian Authority welcomed the decision. The Israeli government contested that the project would violate international law.
