Guy smoking shisha during news broadcast not fazed by Israeli airstrikes (video)Bookmark this
A TV presenter reporting live on deadly Israeli airstrikes in Lebanon yesterday was thrown off guard by an unlikely sight – an elderly man wandering towards her with a shisha pipe.
Despite the gravity of the situation – Israeli warplanes are flying overhead at the country's embattled southern border – the reporter and a crowd of onlookers burst into laughter as the man ambles into the shot, hefting a large hookah in his left hand and grinning pleasantly.
"Aren't you afraid of an escalation?" the reporter asks him.
"No," he replies.
"We want to visit Gaza and eat felafel."
The latest round of clashes between the countries, sparked by a Hezbollah attack that killed two Israeli soldiers, are being viewed as the most serious conflict since war broke out between the two in 2006.
