Astronaut Alexander Gerst Tweets Photo of Crisis in Gaza from ISS

Alexander Gerst, an astronaut aboard International Space Station, tweeted a photo of the crisis in Gaza on Thursday. The most disturbing lights in the video are the explosions occurring in the populated area. Gaza and its surrounding areas can be seen through clusters of light and veins indicating cities.

Alex Gerst has become the first person to document the conflict between Hamas and Israel. He added the caption to the photo as, "My saddest photo yet. From the International Space Station we can actually see explosions and rockets flying over Gaza and Israel".
