At 6:00am this morning, Palestine Action activists stormed the site of 
Elbit subsidiary, Elite KL in Tamworth, Staffordshire, for the third 
time this year.


Our mission and message remain the same: shut Elbit down! Elbit Systems 
directly supplies the military hardware central to Israel's ongoing 
repression of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories.


Our fearless ativists entered Elite KL's site, dowsed the premises in 
blood-red paint and smashed windows, to disrupt business as usual. Two 
activists successful scaled the building and are currently occupying the 
roof.


Today's action is the latest in Palestine Action's campaign against 
Elbit Systems, with activists throughout the country putting their 
bodies and liberties on the line in direct solidarity with the 
Palestinian people.


Our relentless direct action technique is halting the manufacture of the 
munitions and machinery used to repress, murder, and surveil civilians 
in Palestine, ensuring that this mass suffering is not facilitated with 
UK-made armaments. Palestine Action have cost incalculable millions to 
the profiteers of war crimes, and direct action will continue until 
Elbit is permanently shut down.


Elite KL in Amington Industrial Estate, Tamworth, helps manufacture 
military technology for the Israeli forces, including essential 
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.
