An oddly fitting way for the Palestinians to celebrate.
Via Jewish Business:
As the cease-fire began in Gaza, Tuesday evening—it was supposed to start at 7 PM but rockets and mortar shells continued to fall in Israeli territory as late as 7:15 PM—the V Day celebrations erupted in Gaza, after 50 days of clashes.
As is common on such occasions, thousands flocked in the streets, with many shooting randomly in the air, because that’s how folks have been expressing happiness in this region since the invention of gunpowder.
And then people started to drop in the streets. According to tweets from Gaza, as many as 2 locals were killed from those gunshots, and at least 25 were injured.
An 8 PM tweet in Arabic read: “Gaza: wounded in shooting in the air, internal calls for citizens to express their happiness by other means.”
