The Guardian reports that legal advice to the government has been given that the Israeli actions in Gaza breach international law ...

" ... according to a leaked recording obtained by the Observer"

“I remain convinced the government has completed its updated assessment on whether Israel is demonstrating a commitment to international humanitarian law, and that it has concluded that Israel is not demonstrating this commitment ... "

If this is true it may go some way to explain the recent vote by the UK at the UN Security Council for an immediate ceasefire to lead to negotiations on a permanent cessation of hostilities.

It does appear that currently this is a "leak" rather than an official position, so we must await further developments. UK provision of arms and munitions to Israel may finally have to end.
