Britain says it will review all weapons exports to Israel following the country's recent war on Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The move comes amid pressure from British lawmakers who had demanded that the government ensure UK weapon parts were not used against Palestinians. Foreign Secretary David Miliband told Parliament Tuesday that all export licenses would be reviewed "in light of recent events in Gaza." Israel's three-week offensive ended in mid-January. He says all future applications to export arms to Israel will also be assessed with the Gaza conflict in mind. Miliband says Britain supplies less than 1 percent of Israel's military imports.
