Correspondence with Lonely Planet regarding its misrepresentation of the Occupied Syrian Golan as part of Israel
In July and August 2016, Al-Marsad was in correspondence with Lonely Planet regarding its misrepresentation of the Occupied Syrian Golan as part of Israel on its website and guidebook: ‘Israel & the Palestinian Territories’.
Letter from Al-Marsad to Google regarding Google Maps no longer showing the names of destroyed Syrian villages in the Occupied Syrian Golan
In June 2016, Al-Marsad wrote to Google to inform it that Google Maps no longer shows the names of the destroyed Syrian villages in the Occupied Syrian Golan, and, instead, only shows the names of the illegal Israeli settlements built on their ruins. The letter explains that Google must take an objective approach, in line with international human rights law and international humanitarian law, and stop supporting Israel’s narrative of the landscape of the Occupied Syrian Golan. Al-Marsad looks forward to Google amending its Maps function to show the names of the destroyed Syrian villages in the Occupied Syrian Golan, based on official Syrian maps prior to 1967, as soon as possible.
