For the last fortnight, residents living in Tel Aviv have been documenting their experiences of taking cover in bomb shelters by taking “bomb shelter selfies".

The trend began when Israelis vowed to “keep on smiling” even while air-raid sirens warn them of Hamas airstrikes.

Most of the photos show Israeli citizens smiling and laughing as they pose for photos with friends and family.

Some captions to the photos include: "Lovin this ceasefire”, "Praying for a quiet night so my kiddies get a good night's rest”, and, "Thanks Hamas for making babysitting such an adventure!"
