As reported by Investigate, “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 Whitney’s F-100 engine series powers Israel’s F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, and the company’s 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 are part of Israel’s military arsenal used in armed violence against Palestinians, including in Israel’s repeated aerial bombardments of the besieged Gaza strip.
