The Report: Are online tourism websites fuelling Israeli 'War Crimes'?

Synopsis

Amnesty International released a report today claiming that online tourism giants ‘Air BnB’, ‘Trip Advisor’ and ‘Booking.com’ are fuelling human rights violations against Palestinians by listing hundreds of rooms and activities in illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian land. Amnesty International accuse the firms of normalising settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and making money from what they call ‘War Crimes’.
