Sabeel-Kairos joins War on Want and other NGOs to call for a halt in UK arms sales to Israel

Join us and email your MP today to demand that the UK stops its complicity in Israel’s war crimes.

Dear Foreign Secretary.

We write in the context of the ongoing hostilities in Israel and Palestine, in which many thousands of civilians have been killed and more than 1.9 million people have been displaced from their homes, to call on the UK Government to immediately halt arms transfers to the Government of Israel.

There is a clear risk that arms and military equipment transferred to Israel might be used to facilitate or commit serious violations of international law, including attacks that may amount to war crimes. Accordingly, the UK Government should immediately suspend both extant licences for military equipment and technology and the issuing of new licences while the Israel Defence Forces continue to carry out widespread serious violations including war crimes, with impunity. Failure to do so risks the Government breaching its own laws and international obligations and being complicit in grave abuses.
