Tel Aviv – The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) announced that its movement has successfully prevented an Israeli transportation company from reaching a Dutch deal worth millions of euros thanks to a campaign it launched against Israeli occupation.

BDS said on its various social media websites that weeks ago, it managed to deprive Egged from a tender that the Dutch government had proposed to manage a transportation network in northern Netherlands.

It attributed the success to a campaign it launched through Dutch media in which it demonstrated how Egged serves the occupation regime and settlement expansion on Palestinian territories. The company also furthers segregation because it discriminates between Jews and Palestinians whereby it offers separate services to each side.

Egged is the largest public transportation company in Israel, operating throughout the country and occupied land.

It was supposed to sign a contract worth 190 million euros a year with the Netherlands to provide services in the northern part of the country, including Amsterdam, for the next ten years.
