Activists protest Israeli arms firm’s presence in Paris Airshow

French activists have staged a protest outside the stall of Israeli weapons company Elbit Systems at the Paris Airshow, holding the firm accountable for the war crimes committed by the regime against Palestinians.

Pro-Palestinian campaigners from the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and Les Désobeissants (the disobedient) held the sit-in earlier this week to express their solidarity with the Palestinians.

The activists called for an immediate arms embargo on Tel Aviv until it ends it occupation of the Palestinian territories and complies with the international law.

They also urged the prosecution of Elbit Systems’ officials at the International Criminal Court for Israel’s atrocities against the Palestinians.

The Haifa-based Elbit Systems is Israel’s largest publicly traded arms company that manufactures 85 percent of the drones used by the Israeli military.
