Israelis Celebrating Deaths In Gaza
Allan Sørensen, the Middle Eastern correspondent for the Danish newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad, said that he took the image on Wednesday in Sderot, a city about two kilometers from Gaza and described the scene where over 50 people had gathered for a 'party'.
'The hill has been transformed into something that most closely resembles the front row of a reality war theatre. It offers a direct view of the densely populated Gaza Strip', wrote the paper’s Middle Eastern correspondent Nikolaj Krak.
He explained how they had brought chairs and sofas to watch Israeli night airstrikes while enjoying pop-corn, hookah and chit-chatting.
'We are here to see Israel destroy Hamas' Eli Chone, a 22-year-old American living in Israel told Kristeligt Dagblad. He then pointed to a dot of light in the sky explaining that, 'it is a fighter who is about to dive. This means that it is about to shoot'.
Following the airstrike the spectators on the hill started cheering, and 'solid applause' followed, the Danish correspondent wrote.
No wonder Israel has so little support and so few friends around the globe, sickening.
