Dutch Court Orders Halt to Exporting F-35 Fighter Jet Parts to Israel

HeadlineFeb 12, 2024

In the ruling, one of the judges wrote, “It is undeniable that there is a clear risk that the exported F-35 parts are used in serious violations of international humanitarian law.” In November, Oxfam and Amnesty International sued the Dutch government, saying the arms transfers violated the Netherlands’ obligations under international law to prevent war crimes.
