ALBAWABA - Activists in Gaza have made a thank you sand tapestry for Jon Snow on the Gaza beach. It's in appreciation of the long-time British Channel 4 presenter and anchor for his pro-Palestinian stances.

Snow long covered the plight of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation and is much remembered by the people of the Strip for his coverage of the 2014 Israel war on Gaza that lasted for three weeks.
The appreciation of the Palestinians is being made as a gesture when they heard that the UK presenter is retiring at 74 years of age after a 32-stint as a news presenter at Channel 4.
Thanks, John Snow, for being a friend of Palestine, and highlighting the struggles of Palestinians, particularly during the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip in 2008— Eman𓂆🇵🇸 (@Emannajee) December 27, 2021

Channel 4 News is one of those things that is so much better than it needs to be - or could be. Jon Snow has been a big reason. https://t.co/P89c9NlMw0— Lucy Prebble (@lucyprebblish) December 23, 2021
