VIDEO: Gaza 'flash mob' in Istanbul moves audience to tears
ISTANBULA dramatic reenactment of the recent Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip has moved some bystanders to tears in an Istanbul street.
A group of actors staged the reenactment that Turkey's semi-official Anadolu Agency described as a "flash mob" in a street named as "Help Gaza" by Eyüp Municipality.
As sirens blared, the actors, some covered with fake blood, yelled for help to escape from "the Israeli bombing."
The show moved some Istanbulites to tears, while some others chanted, "Down with Israel."
"We wanted our citizens to feel the drama in Gaza," Eyüp Mayor Remzi Aydın told Anadolu Agency, noting that 15 NGOs opened stands in the street to collect donation for Palestinians.
