BOMBARDIER's Illegal Train Project in Palestinian Occupied Territories

A closer look at Bombardier's new project in Israel that consists of providing 62 (possibly 94) trains to an illegal train route being built by Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

In 2011, after a subsidiary of the German state-owned firm, Deutsche Bahn, withdrew from the A1 rail line, the former German transport minister, Peter Ramsauer, said: “this Israeli railway project which runs through occupied territory is problematic from a foreign policy standpoint and is potentially
against international law
.”
