Caterpillar to delay supply of D9 bulldozers to IDF

Jerusalem Post, 25 October 2010 -- Caterpillar, the company which supplies the IDF with bulldozers, has announced that it is delaying the supply of D9 bulldozers during the time that the trial of Rachel Corrie proceeds, Channel 2 reported on Monday.

The company does not usually manufacture a military version of the D9 but it has many features that make desirable for military applications and the IDF has used them extensively for operations.

Rachel Corrie was a US activist who was killed in Gaza seven years ago by a bulldozer driver who struck and killed her. Her family charged that the IDF and its officers had acted recklessly, using an armored Caterpillar D9R bulldozer without regard to the presence in the area of unarmed and nonviolent civilians.

  1. I have a feeling that this pictures with militaries posing beside the bulldozer D9 is from Iraq rather than Palestine. Those 4 soldiers look like Americans not Israelis.
