Gaza fireworks and shooting in air for high school end

Hamas threatens arrests and fines

18 July, 13:26

    (ANSAmed) - GAZA, JULY 18 - Despite strict warnings in recent days from the Hamas interior ministry, numerous inhabitants of Gaza celebrated Wednesday evening with fireworks and shooting in the air after the publication of the 'Tawji' high school leaving exam results. Local sources say that many family celebrations included fireworks, which in at least one case resulted in a home catching fire. Blasts of automatic weapons were heard in the morning in some streets of Gaza City, despite Hamas's threat to arrest anyone found with firearms in their possession and to hand down a 1,000-shekel fine, about 250 euros. Two years ago, three people were killed accidentally in Gaza during the Tawji celebrations.

    There were no reports of casualties this year. (ANSAmed).
