Amnesty slams Caterpillar over Israel



Amman, Jordan, Jul. 19 (UPI) -- Amnesty International criticized U.S. heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar for supplying Israel with bulldozers used in demolishing Palestinian houses.


The human rights watchdog group said its coordinator in Amman Khuzama al-Rashid relayed a protest letter to the company's representative in the Jordanian capital Monday.

"The equipment and machinery sold by Caterpillar International to Israel are being used by the Israelis in violating the human rights of Palestinians," the letter said.

It said according to U.N. rules, international companies should make sure they do not to participate in any war crimes, crimes against humanity or violations of international human rights laws.......
