‘A group of Palestinians have recently filed a $34.5-billion lawsuit against a series of pro-Israel corporations, individuals, and non-profit organizations, accusing them of helping the Israeli regime to expand its illegal settlements.

The plaintiffs, including activist Bassem al-Tamimi and more than 30 others, targeted billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, Volvo, Israel Chemicals, Bank Leumi, Bank Hapoalim, and a number of others for their alleged role in the expansion of the illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory “in a manner injurious to the Palestinians and their property rights,” Israel’s Ynetnews daily reported on Friday.

The nearly 200-page lawsuit, brought by Washington lawyer Martin McMahon on behalf of its plaintiffs, was filed in Washington DC federal court on Monday.’
