JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel denounced on Wednesday a long-delayed U.N. report listing companies with business ties to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

“The announcment by the U.N. Human Rights Office of the publication of a ‘blacklist’ of businesses is shameful capitulation to pressure from countries and organisations that are interesting in hurting Israel,” Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz said in a statement.
