ICAHD UK is involved with this campaign, initiated by Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) which calls for the UK government to introduce an immediate embargo on arms trading with Israel. The UK licensed arms sales to Israel worth u22.5m in 2005, more than twice the amount in 2004. It also spends millions of pounds each year buying arms from Israeli companies that have been ‘battle-tested’ in the Occupied Territories. The notorious F-16 fighter jets and Apache combat helicopters which were recently used to bomb towns and villages in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon rely on significant UK components. Stop Arming Israel was set up in July 2006 by ICAHD UK, Campaign Against Arms Trade, War on Want and Palestine Solidarity Campaign, along with other organisations and individual campaigners.
