Israeli Flag Ripped Up at Brussels Memorial

As the Belgian people mourn those killed in this week's bombings at the Brussels airport and a metro station, memorials for victims have popped up. But, The Jerusalem Post reports that an Israeli flag at one of the makeshift sites was ripped up, an act that was caught on video:

A French-language television station captured footage of a woman wearing a hijab ripping up an Israeli flag at a makeshift memorial for the victims of Tuesday’s bombings in Brussels.

The images were captured by the RTL television network and disseminated on the web and social media.

The incident took place at the vigil that was set up in the central Brussels landmark Place de la Bourse.

In the clip, the woman is seen sifting through the flags that were lining the pavement. After lifting a Palestinian flag, she then spots an Israeli flag and begins tearing it up. She then buries the ripped shards underneath other flags.
