In another show of global solidarity, pro-Palestinian activists in the UK took their protest of Israel’s war on Gaza to the roof of a factory owned by an Israeli arms manufacturer.

UAV Tactical Systems manufactures military drones that are used by Israel in its war on the besieged Gaza Strip. 221 people have been killed in Israel’s latest onslaught on the overcrowded and besieged Gaza Strip.

“Members of Palestine Action, a direct-action protest group, chained themselves to the gates of the UAV Tactical Systems factory at the Meridian Business Park, Leicestershire,” the New Arab reported.

The London-based publication described UAV Tactical Systems as a “joint subsidiary of Israeli weapons giant Elbit Systems, which promotes its technology as ‘combat-tested’ by Israel’s military, and French defense firm Thales.”
