Elbit, recognized as the largest Zionist weapons company, found itself at the center of a demonstration denouncing its alleged role in producing displays for the Israel Defense Forces (IOF) jets and drones. According to activists, these displays are purportedly utilized to identify targets, including hospitals, schools, and mosques in Gaza.

The protest took a visually striking turn as the front of the building was completely covered with red paint, symbolizing the bloodshed associated with the weaponry manufactured within. Windows were reportedly smashed, and the main lobby doors were locked with a bicycle lock. Additionally, HVAC equipment was destroyed, effectively bringing the operations of the facility to a halt.
