For the Palestinian caws: Crow 'tears down' Israeli flag from mast
A video that appears to show a crow tearing down an Israeli flag from a pole is being widely shared online.
The video shows a seemingly determined crow pecking and tugging at the Israeli flag until it falls from its mast to the ground, while onlookers let out disapproving cries in Hebrew.
One of the earliest versions of the video was shared on Twitter by a user known as Sarah Palestine. The tweet has garnered more than 15,000 views at the time of writing.

There have been a number of videos shared online recently, purportedly showing animals targeting the Israeli flag.

"Even cats came out too, they can't stand them or their knowledge. Not just crows," they tweeted.
