To the Editor:
As reported in “For Israelis on Edge of Battle, Rockets Put on a Show” (news article, July 23), Israelis sit on a white couch on a hillside eating popcorn and cheering as they watch the skies lit up by airstrikes and explosions.
In Gaza, as Mohammed Omer notes in his Op-Ed article, “fear permeated the summer night,” and Gazans “scanned the night sky” for any warning of bombs. What better example of the tragic toll of this war in moral degradation and disproportionate destruction?
