UK Threatens to Cut 12 Arms Export Licenses to Israel


The UK on Tuesday threatened to suspend 12 arms export licenses to Israel if the fighting in Gaza starts up again, a day before the current 72-hour ceasefire with the Hamas terrorist organization ends on Wednesday at midnight.

The announcement was made by British Business Secretary Vince Cable, an MP of the Liberal Democratic party. The suspension would affect exports of components for radar systems, fighter jets and tanks, reports the UK's Huffington Post.
