Banned Israeli Tourist Advert

An Israeli tourism campaign which showed areas of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights as being within Israel's borders has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority following 442 complaints.

The campaign, which ran on London Underground cross-track posters, had the headline "experience Israel" with a picture of a boy snorkelling with dolphins. The advert showed a map of Israel that included the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights.

The ASA deemed that the poster misleadingly implied that these areas were internationally recognised as part of Israel.
