Members of the Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza said they painted the fountains' water red "in order to remind everyone that the siege results in blood, both on the land and in the sea."
The perpetrators spray-painted slogans around the fountains – on Dizengoff, Yigal Alon and Masaryk streets – including "Freedom for Gaza" and "Occupation=terror".

The Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza said in a statement, "More than 2,600 Palestinians have been murdered by Israel in the Gaza Strip alone in the past four years of siege, in attack from the air, sea and land. The only solution for stopping the bloodshed is by lifting the siege and ending the occupation through peace negotiations, by unilateral actions."
