Pro-Palestine vandals release mice at McDonald's and smash windows in string of attacks on businesses supporting Israel | The Sun
PRO-Palestine vandals have released mice and smashed windows at McDonald's in a string of attacks on businesses supporting Israel.
Shocking footage has shown the live rodents being tossed from bins and onto the floor in at least three different UK restaurants.
In one of the clips – which was uploaded to social media – the masked men can be heard yelling: "Free Palestine."
Palestinian flags can be seen, and more chanting can be heard, in other videos, too.
More footage has also been uploaded to TikTok of rats painted red, green and black – for the colours of the flag.
Elsewhere, the aftermath of another attack showed what appeared to be hammer marks scattered across a McDonald's restaurant's glass.
