PALESTINE activists blocked the entrance to the building of an arms company supplying weapons to Israeli in Leicester today, which was the 24th day of action targeting the site.
Two protesters from Palestine Action and a heavy vehicle locked on in the road outside the only entrance to UAV Tactical Systems, co-owned by Israeli company Elbit, preventing the building from being opened and staff from entering.
The company’s flagship product, the Watchkeeper drone, has been used extensively by the British military in Iraq, Afghanistan and the England Channel and is modelled on the Hermes drone, which is marketed as “battle-tested” on Palestinians.
Palestine Action has pledged to maintain the siege until Elbit withdraws from Britain.
The group has already forced the closure of two of the company’s 10 sites through similar actions.
A spokesperson said: “Since our siege began and in just 24 days, 55 Palestinian people have been killed by the Israeli regime.
“At least 33 were killed in this month’s ritual bombing of Gaza and we know that Elbit’s drones were used during this campaign.
“For Palestine, we will not leave until Elbit does.”
