Dozens of Palestinian journalists and others participated in solidarity protests organised in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, calling on the International Criminal Court to prosecute the Israeli army for its attacks on journalists.
After Israel's 11-day assault of Gaza during Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr last year, customary festivities are a painful reminder for the dozens of Gazan families who lost loved ones. The New Arab speaks with two survivors about how they have coped.
"We insisted on celebrating this year's feast to prove to Israel and the world that we love life and hope to live in peace and security," said an elderly man whose granddaughter was killed by Israel during its war on the Gaza Strip last year.
For many Gazans, Eid al-Fitr is a harsh reminder of their agonising conditions. Plagued by unemployment, families have had to choose which of the festival's necessities they would go without or find cheaper, second-hand alternatives.
