Britain Approves Arms Deals with Israel – Cahal Milmo (Independent-UK)
The UK gave the go-ahead last year for dozens of military exports to Israel, including components for drones and air-to-surface missiles.
Other items included components for military radars, submarines and jet engines, as well as components for military pilots’ head-up displays and military combat vehicles.
36 further export licenses were granted for British components sent to destinations including Germany, Italy and the U.S. for incorporation into weaponry which was then to be sold to Israel.
Ministers have previously defended Britain’s exports to Israel by saying the country has a right to self-defense.
