Google fires 28 employees for protesting $1.2 billion Israeli contract

Tech giant, Google, has terminated the employment of 28 workers for protesting against a $1.2 billion cloud computing contract inked by Google and Amazon with the Israeli government and its military three years ago.

Google said the protesting employees were sacked for entering and disrupting work at a few unspecified office locations.

The project called Project Numbus reportedly provides Israel with the full suite of Google Cloud’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.
