Amazon employees urge Jeff Bezos to cut ties with Israeli military

Employees at Amazon have urged the e-commerce giant to sever all ties with the Israeli military, just a day after Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google signed a $1.2bn deal with Israel, Middle East Eye can reveal.

The letter, signed by 600 employees, and delivered to Jeff Bezos, Andy Jassy and the executive team on Tuesday, urges Amazon "to commit to review and sever business contracts and corporate donations with companies, organizations, and/or governments that are active or complicit in human rights violations, such as the Israeli Defense Forces."

The letter, sent to MEE by an employee and signatory to the letter, says that given that Amazon employs Palestinians in Tel Aviv, Haifa offices and around the world, "ignoring the suffering faced by Palestinians and their families at home erases our Palestinian coworkers."
