Palestinians in Gaza are gearing up for Eid Al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
In the photos below, we take you on a new journey among Gaza’s street vendors preparing and selling salted fish, known as fisikh, and Turkish delights. We also visit a small factory that makes samosa, a popular item on the Palestinian Ramadan menu.
While I covered war and the effect of the Israeli blockade on Gaza, I try through my work to convey the other side of Gaza, one that exhibits the tenacity and the love for life among the besieged Strip’s two million inhabitants.
I hope you enjoy these photos.
