CAT equipment is sold to Israel under the US Foreign Military Sales Program. It is illegal for US-purchased equipment to be used to violate human rights, yet CAT continues to sell bulldozers to Israel. They are used to destroy Palestinian homes, agricultural land, and aide in the construction of illegal settlements and the erection of an illegal separation wall on Palestinian land. Since 1967, the Israeli army has
used CAT equipment to destroy over 12,000 homes in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.
