UK will not suspend arms exports to Israel, David Cameron says | The Guardian |

The foreign secretary said that he had reviewed the most recent legal advice about the situation on the ground but this left the UK's position on export licences "unchanged".

Downing Street has come under mounting pressure from senior Tories to suspend weapons exports in light of the growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and after the deaths of three Britons in the strike on aid group World Central Kitchen.

Cameron said that continuing to allow arms exports put the UK in line with other "like-minded countries" and reiterated that the UK had a robust legal process for assessing those licences.

He said: "We don't publish legal advice, we don't comment on legal advice but we act in a way that is consistent with it, we're a government under the law and that's as it should be."
