Truck protest closes Gaza border crossing

Palestinian truck drivers take part in a protest against the siege on the Gaza Strip, on February 6, 2018 in Gaza City. Israel has maintained a siege on Gaza for a decade which it says is necessary to limit Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the strip and with which it has fought three wars since 2008. Egypt has also kept its border with Gaza largely closed in recent years, but has allowed some fuel to be imported. / AFP / MOHAMMED ABED
