Cape Times - - WORLD NEWS - Ma’an

BETH­LE­HEM: The UN Hu­man Rights Coun­cil plans to go ahead with the pub­li­ca­tion of a list of com­pa­nies op­er­at­ing in il­le­gal Is­raeli set­tle­ments in the oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­tory and the Golan Heights, in spite of diplo­matic pres­sure from the US and Is­rael.

The list will be pub­lished in De­cem­ber, and will in­clude some of the big­gest firms in Is­rael as well as ma­jor US com­pa­nies, the Times of Is­rael said. The firms on the list re­port­edly in­clude Coca-Cola, TripAd­vi­sor, Airbnb, Price­line, and Cater­pil­lar, in ad­di­tion to Is­raeli com­pa­nies such as phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal gi­ant Teva and banks Hapoalim and Leumi.
