Israel is testing new weapons on Gaza as arms dealers profit from Gaza war

Worldwide protests calling for a ceasefire are drawing attention to the role of weapons manufacturers and distributors supplying machinery to Israel’s assault on Gaza, with demonstrators blocking shipping tankers and entrances to weapons factories, and unionised workers refusing to handle military materiel over the war in Gaza.

There is “a growing public awareness and anger” about the global connection between Western powers and the Israeli military industry, says Antony Loewenstein, who has investigated how Israeli weaponry and surveillance technology are used on Palestinians and exported around the world.

“Israel is already, as we speak … live-testing new weapons in Gaza,” Loewenstein says. He also discusses what he characterises as the “intelligence” and “political” failures of the 7 October Hamas incursion.
