Press Release: Britain backing Israel, what’s the cost?

It’s scandalous that the government are refusing to answer questions about the financial costs of protecting Israel. The Ministry of Defence, responding to a Parliamentary Question tabled by George Galloway, refused to provide costs saying they would be provided in due course in the annual accounts. How convenient! 

A conservative estimate suggests that the costs of maintaining naval vessels in the Red Sea and mounting bombing raids on Yemen may be up to £109 million. 

These costs are exclusive of the costs of mounting 59 RAF flights to Israel between October and May and operating surveillance operations targetting Palestinians.

Fess up, Defence Secretary Shapps. Tell the people how much public money is being squandered on protecting Israel from the consequences of its own barbaric actions.
