In an interview with the Army Radio on Wednesday, the Israeli Prime Minister denounced the United Nations organization and accused it of "being anti-Semitic and systematically targeting Israel". "We reject any such attempt in the strongest terms and with disgust", he said in a statement.
Israel's President Reuven Rivlin called the database "shameful", while Foreign Minister Israel Katz said the database was "discriminatory anti-Israel policy".
The Palestinian foreign minister, Riyad al-Malki, lauded the report as a "victory for global law and diplomatic efforts".
Trump's peace plan has been rejected by the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, who said the proposal would strengthen what he called Israel's "apartheid regime" and would reward Israeli occupation rather than holding it accountable for crimes committed against Palestinians. In releasing this database, the High Commissioner falls prey, by intent or accident, to the very impulses that have impeded the path to peace for seventy years.
The rights office initially evaluated more than 300 companies.
"Working at the behest of the notorious UN Human Rights Council, the UN Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights has officially made a decision to endorse anti-Semitic BDS by issuing a defamatory list of companies it claims are supposedly involved in "settlement activity", NGO Monitor Legal Adviser Anne Herzberg said in a statement responding to the UN's publication of the blacklist".
In a statement, the human rights office said 94 of these companies were domiciled in Israel-including all major Israeli banks, state-owned transportation companies Egged and Israel Railways Corporation, and telecommunications giants Bezeq, HOT and Cellcom.
"The UN Human Rights Council is a biased and uninfluential body".
"The maligned companies should begin assessing plans to take legal action against the United Nations officials who prepared the list and those who will propagate its false claims".
Wednesday's report meanwhile stressed that companies were not doomed to remain on the database forever.
Following what it said was a thorough review and assessment of all information available, the OHCHR presented a report on Wednesday identifying 112 business entities that it said, there were reasonable grounds to conclude, had been involved in one or more of those activities.

Washington unveiled its "Deal of the Century" peace plan last month, with the proposal recognizing Tel Aviv's claims to sovereignty over Jewish settlements in the West Bank, and recognizing Jerusalem as the country's capital.
Airbnb declined comment. The San Francisco company said in November 2018 that it was removing its listings in West Bank settlements.
