Pro-Palestine activists argue Consul General Philip Hall to stop arming “Israel”

Wednesday, 9th September, 2020 (The Inside Palestine)- Pro-Palestine activists, represented in Palestine Online Team, argue Consul General Philip Hall to take action towards Israeli crimes against Palestinian civilians, after his visit, yesterday, to the Central Joint Operating Command and Control Centre (CJOC3) in Ramallah to see how UK support for training and equipment is helping the Palestinian Authority respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

The UK government is complicit in Israel’s continuing violations of human rights and international law. By purchasing arms from and selling arms to “Israel,” the UK government is giving direct material support for Israel’s aggression and sending a clear message of approval for its actions against Palestinians.

Furthermore, UK banks and financial institutions hold billions of pounds worth of shares in companies that sell weapons, military equipment and technology to “Israel.” Accordingly, the activists ask Consul General Philip Hall to not allow banks to continue lending support to Israel’s militarised repression of Palestinians.
