    Moroccan hashish sellers are refusing to sell their wares to Israeli criminals in protest at the war in Gaza, according to Israeli media.

    A report in the Mako news site cited a number of Israeli drug dealers complaining about the drop-off in trade.

    “The hashish dealers in Morocco are not willing to sell us more hashish either directly or through intermediaries,” said one dealer.

    “They decided that because of the war they are boycotting us. Since the war we have lost a lot of money. Tens of millions of shekels at least.”

    The outlet also quoted a Moroccan hashish dealer saying they were refusing to sell to Israelis over the war.

    “Why is it possible for Israelis to make a living selling Moroccan hashish when our Palestinian brothers are suffering from hunger and living in inhumane conditions?” said the dealer, based in the Rif Mountains, a hub for hashish growing.

    “Go buy it somewhere else. We no longer sell hashish to Israelis - before the war, we did business here with Israelis...merchants came here and made good money, now that’s the end of it.”
