Local Editor

The report comes amid ongoing deadly clashes between Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip and the "Israeli" entity's border guards.

The Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), a UK-based NGO, has published information on UK weapons exports to the "Israeli" entity for 2017. According to the data, the UK sold record £221 million ($294.5 million) worth of weapons and an additional £68 million ($90.6 million) worth of dual-use goods to the entity in 2017, which is greater than over the course of the preceding four years combined (£148 million worth of arms, or $197 million).

Weapons and equipment sold by the UK to the "Israeli" entity included small arms ammunition, missiles, sniper rifles and targeting equipment, as well as parts for military vehicles, such as airplanes. The most significant sum in 2017 was spent by the "Israeli" armed forces on technology for military radars.

Palestinians have been holding mass demonstrations near the besieged Gaza Strip's border with the "Israeli" entity since March 30, known as the "Great March of Return." The demonstrators claim the right of return for people that were displaced during the war following the entity's creation in 1948.

The demonstrations have resulted in clashes between Gazans and "Israeli" border guards. Tel Aviv claims that the rallies are organized by Hamas in order to infiltrate the entity and conduct attacks against its citizens. According to Palestinian medical workers, since March 30, at least 115 Palestinians had been martyred during the protests, while over 13,300 people had been injured.
