NGO accuses telecommunication companies of being complicit in the Israeli occupation

In July 2018, Who Profits published a report claiming that telecommunication companies operating in the occupied Palestinian territories are complicit in the Israeli occupation. Altice, Bezeq, Cellcom Israel, and Partner Communications allegedly provide services, including several hundreds of active antennas, to illegal Israeli settlements, army bases, and military checkpoints. According to Who Profits, these companies operate in a captive market that exploits Palestinian customers.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the companies to respond to these allegations, none have responded.
