BDS and economics

Hi, I'm wondering about arguments surrounding BDS, that is, Boycott, Divest, and Sanction movement that targets West Bank and Gaza businesses to force Israel to discontinue its occupation of those territories. Some opponents of BDS say that it would be harmful to the Palestinian economy, since Israel is Palestine's major trade partner. Others say that the economic reality of the occupation is already terrible, and therefore BDS is justified in lifting the occupation. Can you elucidate?
