A United Nations blacklist of companies operating in the occupied West Bank, the occupied old city of Quds (‘Jerusalem’) and the occupied Golan Heights includes some of the biggest firms in Israeli industry as well as some household names in the US.

 

The blacklist was partly created thank to efforts of the international Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions Movement.

 

Among those on the UN Human Rights Council list are Coca-Cola, TripAdvisor, Airbnb, and Caterpillar, Israeli Channel 2 reported on Tuesday.

 

The US has threatened to withdraw from the international forum if the list is published.

 

Israeli companies on list reportedly include pharmaceutical giant Teva, the national phone company Bezeq, bus company Egged, the national water company Mekorot and the country’s two largest banks, Hapoalim and Leumi.

 

Some of the international companies — namely Airbnb, Caterpillar, and TripAdvisor, as well as Priceline — were previously reported by The Washington Post to be on the list.
