ALBAWABA – The lions of Gaza roar. A Palestinian in Gaza raises two lion cubs on the rooftop of his home.

According to Middle Easy Eye he has been raising them for nearly a year. Naseem Abu Jamea is no longer happy about keeping them.

He says before the Israeli bombardment of Gaza last May, they were happy but they are no longer so. They are afraid and jittery. 

He is calling on international rights’ groups to adopt them and possibly place them in a nature reserve.

Abu Jamea had once dreamed up of opening his own zoo but now he is more realistic. With the Gaza Strip under siege how can that be he asks?
