More than 7,000 children in the Palestinian territory of Gaza have set a new world record for dribbling basketballs simultaneously.
The event was organized by a UN agency to give hope to children in the conflict zone. It was held at a disused airport, which was destroyed by the Israeli military in 2002.
UN officials say 7,203 children, more than double the previous record, bounced the balls for 5 minutes.
The figure is expected to be recognized by Guinness World Records.
Israel eased its economic blockade of Gaza last month. But sporadic clashes are continuing between Palestinian militants and the Israeli military. Two children were killed on Wednesday.
Children said they hope their mass-dribbling record will help attract the world's attention to the issue of Gaza.
