Corona-what? As Gazans Enjoy Themselves at New Shopping Mall

With the Israel-haters constantly complaining the locked-up Gazans have nowhere to go in the face of coronavirus, they have at least one place to go, apparently.

The brand new Al Nuseirat Hyper Mall

And while the Hyper Mall Facebook page has photos like this

the reality is the coronavirus would have been licking its chops as Gazans streamed in and social distancing was about as popular there as a Jew

So much so, that this happened (auto-translated)

The Attorney General in Gaza, Counselor Dia Al-Din Al-Madhoun, instructed the Public Prosecution Office to open a criminal investigation on suspicion of violating health and safety procedures during the opening of the Al Nuseirat Hyper Mall on Wednesday.

A statement issued by the Public Prosecutor’s Office said that upon the issuance of the assignment, the prosecution of the institutions began the investigation procedures, as it mandated the Medical Investigation and Preventive Medicine Department to search and verify and prepare a detailed report on the store owner’s commitment to health, prevention and public safety measures during the opening, and the Public Prosecution will complete the procedures for collecting evidence To take notes, testify witness statements, interrogate all suspects, and take legal measures against those found to have committed any legal violation.

The opening of the mall witnessed an intense public presence and congestion inconsistent with the safety instructions in the time of corona.

So remember these scenes the next time a hater claims we are dooming trapped Gazans to to the coronavirus.

Or when they claim Gaza is a “concentration camp”/”open-air prison.”

And for the record, malls have been closed in Israel for about a month already.
