According to Dr Zaqout of the Palestine Medical Relief Society: “By buying Teva you are making the Israeli economy stronger and therefore making the settlements stronger." Dr El Farra of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society told Corporate Watch: “The growing of the BDS movement is a strong way of resisting the injustice that has been imposed on Palestinian people for decades. As physicians, our role goes beyond medical services, so it is important and crucial to remind all health workers and pharmaceutical companies to join the campaign of boycotting companies that have strong economical ties with Israel. Teva is an example here.”
