Israelis watch the World Cup semi final as rockets are fired from Gaza. Photo: Hadas Parush/Flash90

Israelis are serious about football. Code Red sirens may have sounded across the country last night as Operation Protective Edge in Gaza moved towards the end of its first day, but that didn’t stop Israelis at the Sarona center in Tel Aviv from watching the semi-finals of the World Cup.

This week’s photograph was taken by Hadas Parush/Flash90.
