The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE GOV­ERN­MENT said it was closely mon­i­tor­ing the re­sump­tion of vi­o­lence in Gaza be­fore de­cid­ing whether to ban arms ex­port li­cences to Is­rael. Busi­ness Sec­re­tary Vince Ca­ble had an­nounced plans for an arms em­bargo if the cease­fire broke down. A spokesman said the sus­pen­sion would be­gin if there was “a sig­nif­i­cant re­sump­tion of hos­til­i­ties. Our as­sess­ment so far it has been limited”.
