Gaza, despite the siege, the massive destruction to its infrastructure that is left by the war, and the virtual lockdown as a result of COVID-19, is preparing for the joyful days ahead: Eid al-Fitr holiday, a celebration that immediately follows the month of Ramadan.

We selected twenty photos for you below from various parts of the Gaza Strip, where Palestinians are eager to claim even a semblance of Eid celebrations – a last Ramadan prayer, a box of chocolate, and a stroll in Gaza’s once-busy markets.

Enjoy, and Eid Mubarak from all of us at The Palestine Chronicle.
