Gazan killed - by celebratory gunfire

From Reuters:
With gunshots, sweets and cries of victory, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip poured into the streets to celebrate a ceasefire deal on Wednesday which ended eight days of deadly fighting.

Firing a deafening burst from his Kalashnikov rifle, Mohammed al-Ghazaleh boasted: "(Israeli Prime Minister) Netanyahu will mourn tonight, while the people of Gaza are steadfast in their resistance and have triumphed."

They already have their first triumph. 

Ma'an reports that one Gazan was killed and three more wounded by gunshots - fired during this very celebration.

For Gazans, happiness really is a warm gun.
