Through its website, Booking.com promotes properties located on occupied Palestinian and Syrian land. Properties in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank are listed as located either in Israel or in “Palestinian Territory – Israeli settlement,” while those located in occupied East Jerusalem and Syrian Golan are listed exclusively as located in Israel, misinforming consumers that book short term or long-term rentals. In all cases, Booking.com failed to inform consumers of the settlements’ illegal status under international law and their location on occupied land.
