Teens turning cameras on Sderot


Some Sderot teenagers will be issued camcorders to document the difficulties of living under Palestinian rocket attacks.

Israel’s foreign ministry will provide four Sderot teens and two youths from nearby farming communities with camcorders, Yediot Achronot reported Sunday. The teens are being asked to record the anxiety caused by rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, with a view to posting the footage on film-sharing sites such as YouTube.

Given international attention on the Palestinian plight in Gaza, Israel is searching for ways to stir foreign sympathy for its civilians targeted in the almost daily shelling attacks.
