Amnesty International, Tell TripAdvisor to pull out of illegal Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine

"TripAdvisor lists more than 70 different properties, activities and attractions in illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). By doing so, TripAdvisor is boosting the settlement economy and contributing to settlement expansion. The company’s promotion of settlements as a tourist destination helps to “normalise” and legitimise them to the public. Settlements are illegal under international law - their creation amounts to a war crime. Settlements are on stolen Palestinian land. They should not be tourist destinations."
