Nine women - part of a group protesting at the Raytheon offices in Northern Ireland - have been acquitted of breaking into the arms manufacturing company to cause criminal damage.
The women were part of a group who protested at the Raytheon offices in Londonderry in January 2009.
The women claimed they had done so in order to protect the lives and property of people in the Gaza Strip and to stop alleged war crimes being committed by the Israeli forces.
Speaking outside court on Friday a spokesperson for the group said they were "grateful to the jury and proud of ourselves".
"The verdict represents an acceptance that what we did was not a crime but an attempt to prevent crime, a crime against humanity which continues to be inflicted on the people of Gaza by the Israeli defence forces."
