A construction company. The company constructed multiple housing projects in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

As a contractor, the company has built Green Park project in Matityahu East in the West Bank settlement of Modi'in Illit. It has also built a housing project for Ya'asour in the West Bank settlement of Ma'ale Edomim. In addition, the comapny has built projects for the developer Heftziba in the settlement neighborhood of Har Homa in East Jerusalem and in Ma'ale Edomim and Adam (Geva Binyamin) settlements next to Jerusalem, and it was also hired to complete some housing projects there after the developer Heftziba had gone out of business.

In October 2010, in an official letter to Who Profits, Africa-Israel stated: "Neither the company nor any of its subsidiaries and/or other companies controlled by the company are presently involved in or has any plans for future involvement in development, construction or building of real estate in settlements in the West Bank." However, the company soon after received a 78 million shekel contract to construct the C-Jerusalem project in the settlement neighborhood of Gilo in East Jerusalem. Danya Cebus was the project's contractor. The C-Jerusalem project includes 121 housing units and its construction was completed in 2014.

In 2013, while the construction of the C-Jerusalem project was progressing, Africa Israel made similar false claims to the Norwegian government. When the UK-based Business and Human Rights Resource Centre asked the company directly on the construction in Gilo, Africa Israel responded that, “we were surprised to learn that one can consider – Gilo Neighborhood, which is one of the well-established neighborhoods located in the heart of Jerusalem to be ‘a settlement in the occupied West Bank’ and find such a broad definition to be erroneous.”

In a statement to the Israeli Newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth on October 2014, Africa Israel announced that it will stop building in the occupied Palestinian territories including in Jewish settlements neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. However, there is not mention of this alleged policy change in any of the company’s official publications.
