Motion text

That this House, whilst welcoming a ceasefire in Israel, Palestine and Gaza, notes with concern the continued threat posed to Palestinian civilians by the Israeli Defence Forces; therefore regrets that the Ministry of Defence refused to publish details of the agreement strengthening military co-operation signed by the British Armed Forces with the Israeli Defence Forces on 2 December 2020; further regrets that the Department of International Trade declined to publish the names of companies granted export licences for components potentially for use by the Israeli Defence Forces; and believes that in view of past Palestinian civilian deaths and the severity of the ongoing threat that continues to face them that normal security and commercial confidences are overridden by legitimate public interest.
