Gaza, 26 Jumadil Awwal 1436/17 March 2015 (MINA) – Google has decided to restore the Gaza Man game to its Play Store after removing it following Israeli pressure to remove it earlier this month, Palestinian newspaper Al-Resalah reported yesterday.
The decision was taken after massive international popular pressure put on Google through different mediums, including social media, radios and satellite channels, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Bridgeview For Trading, which owns the game, said in a statement: “We appreciate this measure, which we consider a correction of a big mistake.”
Immediately after it was launched, the game came under intense attack and Google removed it from its Play Store after only three days.
The game shows a Palestinian man with light and primitive weapons facing multiple attacks by fighter jets, helicopters, drones, tanks and other weapons. (T/P002/P3)
