components such as computer systems, power units, and crew body armour
used for Israel's Minerva 4 battle tanks, which have been deployed
extensively in assualts on Gaza.
Elite KL, which was acquired by Elbit Systems in 2011, has been shut
down by Palestine Action THREE times since February 2021. Local
residents have also regularly protested the presence of Elite KL,
demonstrating their refusal to have war criminals in their neighbourhood.
