Tributes Paid To Irish-Israeli Citizen Kim Damti 

Waters’ comments come just a week after tributes were paid to Irish-Israeli citizen Kim Damti, who tragically died after Hamas operatives had attacked the Supernova Music Festival that she attended, after rockets were fired at the festival site. 

Revellers across the festival were shot by militants.

“It is with the greatest sadness that I have heard of the death of the young Irish-Israeli citizen Kim Damti”, President Michael D Higgins said in a statement. “The circumstances in which her life was taken, having travelled as she did to attend a music festival, are truly appalling”. 

“It is not only those of us who are parents, but all of those who feel that young people should be free to attend events with their peers in conditions of safety, who will find such circumstances where a young life is taken so appalling”. 

“Kim’s death once again reminds us what an outrageous breach of fundamental international law in conditions of conflict it is to target civilians in this way”. 

Elsewhere, Roger Waters also reportedly told an audience member at a recent London show to “f*** off”, causing several supporters to leave early. Find out why here.
