GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip— Hamas rulers on Thursday staged a mock attack by Israel to commemorate 2008's Operation Cast Lead.

The re-enactment included loud booms, clouds of smoke, fake blood and rubble. Only the rubble was real.

About 40 actors put on the show Thursday at an apartment tower heavily damaged in the war.

Booms inside the building were followed by plumes of smoke and children's screams. Medics rushed to evacuate children covered in red paint. A car burned nearby.

About 200 people watched.
