    LONDON, (PIC)-- A British parliamentary report has urged the government to reconsider arms sales to Israel after the government acknowledged that the Israeli army used British made weaponry in its attack on Gaza last year.

    The report welcomed the government's decision to cancel five permits to export equipment to the Israeli navy, adding that guarantees should be ascertained that Israel would not use British weapons in the occupied lands in future.

    Israel is one of the largest military contractors and exporters in the world and will do fine without British arms.
