Diana Magnay, who is in Israel to report on the latest developments along the Gaza frontier, observed on camera how a group of Israeli gathered near Sderot applauded as the IDF rained missiles down on the Gaza Strip.

In a subsequent post on her Twitter feet, she noted that she was threatened by some of the Israelis who warned her not to air footage of their reaction lest her car be "destroyed."

She angrily referred to the group as "scum" before the tweet was deleted from her account altogether.
