The website Women For Palestine recently published an “interview” that purported to have been carried out with Riya Hassan, Europe Campaigns Officer with the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), the broadest coalition of Palestinian organisations that leads and supports the BDS movement. The BNC wishes to make clear that none of its activists have carried out an interview with the Women For Palestine website.
