Scotland Yard has issued CCTV images of three women who displayed images of paragliders at a pro-Palestinian rally in central London.

The suspects - whose full faces are seen for the first time - brazenly paraded towards Trafalgar Square with the offensive images during the demonstration on October 14.

Hamas terrorists flew into Israel before killing at least 260 people at the Supernova music festival in the desert near Kibbutz Re’im during the murderous assault on Israel.

Two women at the London rally were spotted with the paraglider images on their jackets.

One was wearing a red top with a white neckline, a light blue face mask, blue and black trousers and was carrying a purple bag.

The second wore a black jacket.

Metropolitan Police detectives are also now looking to identify a third woman seen on CCTV with them.

This woman has a placard with the paraglider image attached to it The women were among tens of thousands at the pro-Palestinian demonstration on Saturday. According to reports, one allegedly chanted: “Britain is a terrorist state.”

Responding to their actions, the Prime Minister vowed that people who glorify Hamas terrorists would be met with the full force of the law.

Mr Sunak said: “Hamas is a proscribed terrorist organisation. It's very clear under the law, the support and glorification of Hamas is illegal, and those offences are punishable with up to almost 14 years in jail.

“But it’s not just about Hamas, more broadly actions that incite violence or stir up religious hatred and racial violence are also not acceptable and that’s why there's no place in our society for that type of hatred and division, and it will be met with the full force of the law where ithappens.”
