The diamond industry is vital to the Israeli occupation's economy since diamonds are Israel's biggest export product.

In fact, the Zionist entity ranks in the top five countries in the world for diamond exports, despite Israel not having a single diamond mine; so where does Israel get its diamonds? And how does this industry contribute to Palestinian dispossession?

The diamond industry in Israel goes back to before the Nakba in 1948. Israeli diamond tycoons have long been involved in exploiting resource rich African countries.
