Pro-Palestinian Activists Storm UK Factory Co-Owned by Israeli Firm Elbit
Several members of the Palestine Action group on Wednesday, May 19, climbed up on the roof of the building in Leicester, a city located about 100 miles northwest of London, Newsweek reported. Others chained themselves to the gates.
The factory, which is also co-owned by the French firm Thales, is involved in the production of drones, they said.
Police and the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service were on the scene, a police spokesperson told the BBC.
“A further group of protesters have since arrived on the ground,” the spokesperson said. “Police remain at the scene and are attempting to engage with those on the roof.” (JPost / VFI News)
