[PDF] Financing the Israeli Occupation The Current Involvement of Israeli Banks in Israeli Settlement Activity

Who Profits' research identified six categories in which Israeli banks are involved in the occupation: providing mortgage loans for homebuyers in settlements; providing financial services to settlements' local authorities; providing special loans for construction projects in settlements; operating branches in Israeli settlements; providing financial services to businesses in settlements; and benefiting from access to the Palestinian monetary market as a captured market. Additionally, as Who Profits' report shows, it is evident that the banks are well aware of the types and whereabouts of the activity that is being carried out with their financial assistance.
