Is­rael-Myan­mar arms ver­dict ex­pected

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

A VER­DICT was ex­pected this week from Is­rael’s High Court on a pe­ti­tion by hu­man rights ac­tivists against the coun­try’s on­go­ing sale of arms to Myan­mar.

De­spite re­ports of on­go­ing per­se­cu­tion by the East Asian na­tion’s mil­i­tary junta of the coun­try’s Ro­hingya mi­nor­ity, the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment has re­fused to con­firm that it will stop selling weapons to the Myan­marese.

Myan­mar’s army has been ac­cused of ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings, in­fan­ti­cide, gang rapes and ar­son car­ried out against the Ro­hingya. Thou­sands have fled to neigh­bour­ing coun­tries.
