There are no longer any cinemas in Gaza due to the force of fundamentalist Islam, which sees these places as a threat to its political and social position; theatres are defined as places of corruption. A long series of actions carried out by the Islamic movement ended up burning down and taking over these places of cinema. The assassination of theatres was a personal assassination of our thoughts.
