Full Text

A publicly traded multinational manufacturer of agricultural and construction equipment, trucks, commercial vehicles and buses.

Engineering machinery manufactured by the company was used for the construction of settlements and related infrastructure, settlement industrial zones and the Separation Wall. The company’s tools were also documented during house demolitions in the area of the South Hebron Hills in the occupied West Bank.

In 2012, CNH EX355 excavators were used during the construction of the Israeli settlement Leshem in the occupied West Bank. The same model was documented during the construction of the Separation Wall in 2008 on the lands of the Palestinian villages of Bidu, Bil’in and Ni’lin and uprooting an apricot and date orchard belonging to the Palestinian village of Artas, in order to expand the infrastructure of the Efrat settlement.

Case wheel loaders were documented building an expansion of the Barkan Industrial Zone in 2013, and in construction of the new Tel Aviv-Jerusalem high speed railway in 2010, which crosses the Green Line twice into the occupied Palestinian Territory. Case wheel loaders were also used during house demolitions in the Palestinian villages of Khirbet M’fakara, Susya and Bir al-‘Id in the South Hebron Hills.

In February 2017, Case heavy machinery was documented at the construction site of the Nabi Elias Bypass Road, a settler road being built near the Palestinian village of Nabi Elias in the occupied West Bank. The bypass road involves the expropriation of 25 acres of Palestinian land, including a total 700 olive trees, belonging to the Palestinian villages of Izbat Tabib, Azzun, and Nabi Elias.
