Three people have been charged with crimes linked to protests over the Israel-Hamas war.

The charges - including hate and terror-related offences and attacking police - follow investigations led by detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command and Public Order Crime Team.

Jorge Silva, 58, of Amhurst Park, Hackney has been charged with racially aggravated threatening behaviour.

The charge relates to an incident in Hackney on Saturday, October 14, where Silva is alleged to have made antisemitic comments, Scotland Yard said.

Silva was bailed to appear at Stratford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, 29 November.

Urslaan Khan, 41, of east London, has been charged with an offence on October 17 in Whitehall. He is accused of inviting support for Hamas, a proscribed terrorist organisation in UK law, under the Terrorism Act.

Khan is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 17.

Mohammed Elle, 23, of Ulster Place, Westminster, was arrested on November 4 after fireworks were fired at police officers who were trying to disperse a large group of protesters.

Elle was charged with assaulting an emergency worker and possession of cannabis.

He was also charged with failing to comply with a direction to disperse after a dispersal order was put in place and failing to remove a face covering when required.

He is currently on bail and will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 23.

The Met has also arrested a woman in connection with an investigation into alleged terrorism offences at a protest in Whitehall on October 14 where a group were seen displaying images of paragliders.

On November 8, officers from the Counter Terrorism Command arrested a 27-year-old woman from south London on suspicion of inviting support for a proscribed organisation.

She remains in custody at a west London police station.

Two women were previously arrested and charged with inviting support for a proscribed organisation as part of the same investigation.

They are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court  this morning (November 10).

Chf Supt Joseph McDonald said the Met looks to identify and secure charges against anyone believed to have committed offences during protests or in the community.

“We continue to receive reports about potential offences, committed both in the real world and online, and we are grateful for the public for their ongoing assistance," he added.

“We would urge anyone who has information about suspicious activity or actions that they believe may constitute an offence to get in touch.

"Every report is reviewed, and we will act where offences are identified.”
