Shut Elbit Down, Palestinian and pro-Palestine activists urge

Elbit provides the Israeli occupation with around 85% of its killer drones. These drones terrorise the people of Gaza and Israeli occupation uses them in daily surveillance and regular attacks.

The company’s profits skyrocketed after its equipment was used in the brutal 2014 assault on Gaza, helping ‘Israel’ to seal contracts with militaries all over the world.

In 2018, Elbit purchased IMI Systems, known for producing cluster munitions, the IOF’s sole supplier of small calibre ammunition.

So not only are the drones in the skies made by Elbit, the bullets being shot by Israeli occupation snipers are also made by Elbit.

Israeli F-16 fighter jets and Apache and Cobra attack helicopters are all made with Elbit equipment.

They have repeatedly been used to attack civilian areas, homes and refugee camps, resulting in thousands of casualties in Gaza, the West Bank, and Lebanon.

Also, Elbit’s Hermes 450 is one of the most used drones in the world. The company markets the drone as “combat proven”, having battle-tested it on Palestinian people.

Palestine Action, as it defined itself, is a direct action network demanding an end to UK complicity with Israeli apartheid, is nearly four months old, and since its launch, it has been determined to shut Israel’s UK chain of arms factories down.

Collectively, it has targeted Elbit Systems and its landlords LaSalle over 40 times, from individual actions to coordinated protests to bigger rooftop occupations.

Elbit’s biggest single customer is the “Israeli Ministry of Defence,” the war criminals.

Video| Israeli forces kill young Palestinian near gate of Al Aqsa mosque

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli forces killed a young man at Hittah gate of Al Aqsa mosque after he allegedly opened fire at an Israeli officer.

Israeli media claimed the young man wounded an Israeli officer but he could not wound more soldiers due to a gun malfunction. He has been allegedly holding a Carlo gun.

Israeli Channel 12 reported that as soon as the young man approached Al Asbar gate, “he opened fire at the Israeli forces, who escaped and hid behind the walls of the old city. Then he stopped due to a gun malfunction.”

Video footage from the location of the operation shows Israeli forces chasing the young man and shooting him at point-blank range.

Videos also show Israeli forces evacuating an officer.

Eyewitnesses revealed that Israeli forces arrested two worshipers inside the courtyard of Al Aqsa mosque. They also attacked other worshipers who were leaving the holy mosque after performing Isha prayer.

After the operation, Israeli forces closed the holy mosque to Palestinians and attacked those, who were inside. They also prevented Palestinians from entry into the old city.

The occupation state has recently increased its oppression against native Palestinians, especially in occupied Jerusalem. Demolitions have increased, even inside the Green-Line areas.

Israeli forces also carry out daily night raids into Palestinians’ houses, arresting dozens of men, children, and women on a daily basis.

Israeli voluntary community emergency response team members pick up Kameel’s body after a shooting incident in occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City 

Kameel belonged to the village of Qabatiyeh near the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.

There was no immediate comment from Palestinian officials following the incident.

Israel captured East Jerusalem during the 1967 war and later annexed the territory, in a move that has not been recognised by the international community.

In 2018, the United States became the first country to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thus recognising the city as the capital of Israel.
