As they watched, they seemed to forget for the moment about the Israeli incursions in the area which brought about dozens of casualties over the past two weeks. Many residents chose to watch the match outside their homes, at restaurants or coffee shops, where big screens afforded a much more interesting atmosphere. Other viewers said they had no choice but to watch the match outside their houses. "We have no electricity, no ventilator, no television set. We came to watch the match because we are bored," said one. Italy seemed to be the favoured team, with some Palestinians holding Italian flags as they watched the match. Gaza resident Abu Mahmoud said,"Who raises the Palestinian flag in front of the whole world, we support him, and Italy will win, God willing." The match was also being watched by Israeli troops stationed at Nabi Mari military base in southern Israel. One of the soldiers compared watching the match at the base with watching it at home saying there were advantages in both. "At home no body tells you what to do, you can scream as much as you want, here they tell you 'be quite, I can't see'. Here there is more 'hevreh' (hebrew for friends), you can see all together, you can scream all together. " said Gabriel Fegelstone, who went on to say that he thought France would win.
