Tourism ministry releases statement ‘from Airbnb’ confirming decision

The Tourism Ministry has forwarded what it says is a statement from Airbnb, confirming that it will not actually go ahead with its decision to remove listings in the settlements.

The statement, in Hebrew, claims Minister Yariv Levin held talks with an Airbnb official named Chris Lanahan, though it probably actually refers to Chris Lehane, Airbnb’s policy head.

There is no official word from Airbnb, and its statement announcing its decision on the West Bank is still up.
