Spain temporarily halts arms sales to Israel

Spanish daily El Pais reports that Madrid has “provisionally suspended” arms sales to Israel in the wake of Operation Protective Edge.

The move will be reviewed in September, and is largely symbolic. Spain sold Israel 4.9 million Euros of arms in 2013.

Israel received vehicle parts, ATVs, grenade fuses, and optical systems from Spain.

Spain also suspended arms sales to Egypt, Ukraine, and Venezuela in the past year.
