A recent report revealed Britain’s approval of arms sale to Tel Aviv worth nearly £7 million in the six months before the regime’s latest fatal aggression against the Gaza Strip.
The Sunday report by The Independent newspaper raised fresh concerns about the use of British-made weapons and equipment by the Israeli military during the 50-day war on Gaza that killed more than 2,100 Palestinians and wounded 10,000 others in July-August.
Citing government figures, it added that the sales included components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles.
Katy Clark, a Labour party lawmaker, also said that it is now abundantly clear that not only did the UK refuse to condemn Israeli military action but it also actively allowed UK companies to arm the Israeli military throughout the latest war on Gaza.
In August, The Independent revealed that arms export licenses worth over £40 million had been granted to 130 British defense manufacturers since 2010 to sell military equipment to the Tel Aviv regime.
