Want Slice of Hamas Rocket? Just 146 Bucks

Yochay Benarie

Want to have your own slice of the war in the Middle East?

You can bid on your very own “Hamas Missile Debris” on HappySale, an Israeli based auction website. The seller, Yochay Benarie, is asking for 500 shekels, or $146.70, for the fragment.

Benarie, who lives in Tel Aviv, put up the debris for auction yesterday, and since then, the page has had more than 6,000 views, no doubt helped by a Buzzfeed article that features the Hamas Missile Debris for sale. The debris is marked, “Slightly Used,” so consider those words before placing your bid. According to Benarie, it is “99.9% safe.”

Another commenter replied, “So basically I only have 0.01% of losing a finger? Hmmm… I’ll think about it :)”

Benarie also assures potential buyers that he can sell multiple fragments of the missile, and that they come in different sizes.

At least 150 civilians have been killed in the air strikes in the past 8 days, including one Israeli man. Israel reported that more than 1000 targets have been hit.
