Pro-Palestinian Group Claims Credit for German Bank Divesting from Israeli Company

Two pro-Palestinian groups advocating boycotts of Israeli companies are claiming credit for pressuring Germany’s Deutsche Bank into divesting from Elbit, an Israeli defense company that manufactures surveillance systems used in conjunction with Israel’s security barrier. In a joint statement issued on Friday, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War and Pax Christi boasted “a major success.” The divestment was reported by Israel’s army radio on Sunday.
