Arms show organizers to appeal French court’s decision to ban Israeli firms from participating

Lazar Berman is The Times of Israel's diplomatic reporter

After a French district court rules that organizers of the Eurosatory 2024 defense and security trade show must ban anyone working for or representing Israeli firms from participating, Coges – the event organizer – is expected to release a statement saying that they will appeal the decision, and that the ruling goes far beyond what was requested by the French government, The Times of Israel has learned.

The French government will also issue a reaction to the ruling.
The ban on employees of Israeli companies would also extend to non-Israelis employed by such firms, while Israelis working for outside companies would be allowed to enter.
