So... what's the fuss about the Watermelon ? 

Do you know that in 1967, raising a Palestinian flag in Gaza and West Bank was considered a crime?

To subvert the ban on the main national colors, Palestinians used to carry sliced watermelons through the region as a sign of protest!

 🍉 🇵🇸

Again... but now in 2023 

"Israel has effectively banned the Palestinian flag 🇵🇸 by ordering Israeli police to tear it down.

While Israel has a history of destroying the Palestinian flag and inflicting violence against Palestinians simply for carrying it, destroying the Palestinian flag is now official Israeli policy. "  -  The IMEU
