Elbit: UK awards Israeli arms firm new contract – despite Gaza genocide

Protest: Elbit is regularly targeted by protest group Palestine Action, that aims to shut down and disrupt multinational arms dealers, especially UK-based operations that provide weapons used in the Israel/Palestine conflict [Image: Palestine Action].

This is the reason the UK is being accused of complicity in the Gaza genocide; this country is giving your money to an arms manufacturer whose weapons are being used to carry it out:

The UK government has been accused of being “totally complicit” in the deaths of tens of thousands of people in Gaza after handing a fresh round of public cash to the British arm of Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit.

A Ministry of Defence contract dated 17 January represents the first time Britain has struck a deal with Elbit’s UK subsidiary since Israel laid siege to Gaza following the 7 October attacks by Hamas.

Elbit reportedly supplies up to 85% of Israel’s drones and land-based military equipment, describing its Hermes 450 drones – which have been used by Israel for strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza in recent months – as “the backbone of the Israeli Defence Forces”.

Its latest contract, which is worth £25,000, was awarded four days after thousands marched through central London to call for a ceasefire in Gaza as part of a global day of action last month.

    Fascist tories not only steal our public money and gave it to their crooked cronies now they are also war criminals!

    So fascist tories it’s fine to give contract to an arms manufacturer Elbit whose weaponry is being used by the fascist terrorist israeli regime to murder Palestinians!! Protesting against the ongoing war crimes being committed by fascist terrorist organisation Israeli regime is still being ignored by our fascist barbaric fake government!
