Worker unions at ports in Livorno and Naples in Italy are holding up weapons shipments slated for Israel in protest of the IDF’s counterattacks in the Gaza Strip, Channel 12 reports.

Israel is currently working to get the shipments released as soon as possible, the network says, referring to the move by Italy as a form of “economic warfare.”
