Pressure is mounting on the UK government to suspend arms sales to Israel, after Israeli air strikes killed three British former military veterans in Gaza.

The men were among seven aid workers with World Central Kitchen (WCK) targeted by three Israeli drone strikes in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza, on Monday evening.

The others killed were Palestinian, Polish, Australian and a US-Canadian dual citizen.

The strike took place just hours after the WCK team had unloaded a shipment of 100 tonnes of food aid into Gaza.

Lord Peter Ricketts, a former national security adviser and former Foreign Office permanent secretary, called for a suspension of UK arms exports to Israel on Wednesday morning.
