Syria bans Liberian, Spanish ships from ports after stops in Israel
The ministry acts upon recommendations of the Office of the
Arab Boycott of Israel, which was established in 1951 by Arab nations to keep companies that did business with Israel from operating in the Arab world.
Last month, the ministry blacklisted a Greek, a Danish and
two Maltese ships for docking at Israeli ports.
In its heyday, the Arab boycott office blacklisted more
than 8,500 companies, including Coca-Cola and Ford Motor
