There are a lot of different perspectives on the military conflict between Israel and Hamas, but Alexander Gerst has one that is truly unique: He’s watching it all unfold from the International Space Station.

“My saddest photo yet. From #ISS we can actually see explosions and rockets flying over #Gaza and #Israel,” the European astronaut and geophysicist tweeted Wednesday.

Palestinians have fired more than 2,000 rockets towards Israel. In response, Israel has launched multiple airstrikes since July 8.
