Dutch court rules Netherlands must stop delivery of F-35 parts to Israel

LONDON – The Netherlands must stop the delivery of F-35 fighter jet parts to Israel within seven days, a Dutch appeal court ordered Monday.

The decision came as the court upheld an appeal from human rights organisations who argued that supplying the parts contributed to “violations of international law by Israel”.

“The court orders the state to cease all actual export and transit of F-35 parts with final destination Israel within seven days after service of this judgement,” Anadolu Agency quoted the court.

“In doing so, the Netherlands is contributing to serious violations of humanitarian law of war in Gaza,” the rights groups said.

The F-35 parts, produced by the United States, are stored at a warehouse in the Netherlands. – BERNAMA-ANADOLU / pic TMR FILE
