According to CAAT “UTC is one of the world’s largest military suppliers. It states that it is “a strong and vital presence on some of the most important military platforms in service today” including the Eurofighter Typhoon, Lockheed Martin F-35 and Northrop Grumman Global Hawk”. In 2018, Israel was also responsible for the first combat use of Lockheed Martin’s F-35. According to the American Friends Service Committee “United Technologies has multiple large subsidiaries, including Pratt & Whitney, which develops and manufactures military and commercial engines, power units, and propulsion products, and UTC Aerospace Systems, one of the largest suppliers of aerospace and defense products for military aircraft. Pratt and Whitneys F-100 engine series powers Israels F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, and the companys F135 propulsion system is the engine for the Israeli F-35 Lightning II plane. Pratt & Whitney has provided equipment and support services to Israeli fighter jets since 2005, and contracted with Israel in 2015 to provide full support for the F-15 and F-16 fleets through 2030.” These jets were used during Israel’s aerial bombardment and ground invasion of Gaza in 2014, in which 2,200 civilians were killed, nearly a quarter of them children.
