A game entitled 'Bomb Gaza' has been freely available to download from Google's Play store for nearly a week.

The Android mobile app requires players to "drop bombs and avoid killing citizens".

Unsurprisingly, the game has sparked outrage for its insensitivity to the suffering being endured by those in Gaza during Israel's latest offensive.

The game was created by user PLAYFTW and puts players in the control of a fighter jet with Israeli markings as it drops bombs on cartoon Hamas militants.
