Stop arming Israel
New Report: Arming Apartheid
Israeli military and industry sources openly attribute the success of Israeli exports to the weapons and technologies being 'combat proven' in the Occupied Palestinian Terrtitories (OPT). This means that when the UK imports Israeli arms, it is helping Israel benefit from unlawful practices. Despite Whitehall's official controls on arms exports, UK-made arms and military technologies continue to be sold to and used by the occupying Israeli forces. The value of licences awarded for export to Israel amounted to £11,615,840 for military use and £28,992,833 for dual (civil or military) use in 2014 alone. Importing arms from and selling arms to Israel makes the UK complicit in Israel's continuing violations of human rights and international law.
These figures and more can be found in our new report 'Arming Apartheid', published with Campaign Against Arms Trade and Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.
