Palestine Action activists spray red paint on companies linked to Israeli arms manufacturer

PALESTINE ACTION activists have sprayed red paint and smashed windows at two companies with links to an Israeli arms manufacturer.

The attacks took place in the early hours of today against the London office of the ADS Group, which represents and acts for arms firms, and EBV Elektronik's facility in Waltham Park, Berkshire.

Both companies work with Israeli-owned Elbit Systems, which has four factories in Britain supplying armed drones and other equipment to the Israeli military.

A fifth Elbit factory, at Oldham in Greater Manchester, was shut down permanently after repeated attacks and occupations by Palestine Action, and supported by regular protests by Palestine supporters who blocked the factory gates.

The action came as Muslims celebrated Eid, the end of the Ramadan month of fasting.

Palestine Action said: “Since October 7, Israel has killed at least 33,360 Palestinians and injured over 75,993.

“As Eid al-Fitr begins, Palestinians will struggle to commemorate this religious holiday considering the ongoing brutality they are facing.”
