Machinery manufactured by Doosan is routinely used in construction projects in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory.

According to Who Profits, Bobcat Company, owned by Doosan Infracore International, a U.S. subsidiary of Doosan, manufactures equipment that has been used in settlement infrastructure projects and in the construction of Israel's illegal separation wall, as well as at least three military checkpoints in the occupied West Bank. Based on the Bobcat mini loader, the Sahar (or Sand Cat)—an engineering support robot—is used by the Israeli military to remove and neutralize improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The machine, which can be connected to various Bobcat models, has been used in the besieged Gaza Strip.

As of 2020, Bobcat robots are also used by the Israeli police.
