Somebody In Israel Is Selling Part Of A Used Rocket On An Auction Site

Israeli seller is asking nearly $150 for part of a rocket that was fired from Gaza on Tel Aviv earlier this week.

1. Yochay Benarie posted this photo Monday on the Israel-based website HappySale, offering to auction up a piece of a rocket which fell on Tel Aviv. He described the item as “slightly used.”

2. More than 1,000 rockets were fired at Israel this last week, most of them in Israel’s south and densely populated center.

In Gaza, more than 190 people have been killed in Israeli air strikes. According to the United Nations, up to one-third of those killed are children. Several dozen Israelis have been injured, but serious casualties have been prevented in part by the country’s antimissile system Iron Dome system, which has intercepted rockets aimed at civilian areas.

3. Going out to watch the rockets has become something of a sport, especially in Tel Aviv, Israel’s largest coastal city which has earned the nickname “the bubble” for its party-on way of life.

4. So far, there have been no bids on the rocket.
