On June 30th, nearly 3000 children came together in the Gaza Strip to set a new world record for parachute games.
The children have previously broken world records for kite flying and basketball bouncing.
In related news, pro-Palestinian activists protested in front of the United States embassy in Athens, Greece, on July 1st, requesting its authorities to clarify on the planned flotilla attempt to Gaza.
This came after an Irish ship backed out from taking part in the flotilla due to alleged Israeli sabotage, while a US ship said it would depart Greece without authorization, according to activists.
