Police are searching for three women who wore pictures of Hamas paragliders and a man who held a poster supporting the terrorist group at pro-Palestine events in London.

Social media footage of a protest in Whitehall on October 14 shows two women with images of paragliders on their tops, while a third held a placard with the image on it.

Hamas, an Islamist militant group, known for its armed resistance to Israel, is classed as a terrorist organisation in the UK.

The group used paragliders as part of its attack on Israel on October 7.

The Metropolitan Police also want to identify a man seen waving a placard with the words “I fully support Hamas” during a protest on Bond Street on October 21.

The force has released images of all four of them in two separate appeals.

The first woman is described as dark-skinned and was wearing light brown trousers and a long-sleeved red top with an image of a paraglider on the back.

She initially had a blue denim jacket tied around her waist and later put this on over her red top.

The second woman has light brown skin with dark hair clipped up at the back of her head.

She is wearing black leggings, black boots and has a large black shoulder bag.

She initially wore a dark hooded top – with a paraglider image attached to the back – and later put on a light brown coat.

The third woman is holding the placard with the paraglider image on the post, appears to be aged in her 20s to 40s and Afro-Caribbean.

She is wearing a large pendant which we believe is green, a dark scarf with a floral pattern on it, a red jacket and red scarf or bandana around her head.

The fourth person being sought by police is a man described as having short dark hair, light skin.

He was seen wearing a dark jacket with a light top underneath, a light stripy scarf around his neck, and light trousers or jeans.
