Virus, Mideast turmoil stifle Eid al-Fitr celebrations

Muslim children celebrate in front of the Dome of the Rock mosque after the morning Eid al-Fitr prayer, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, at the Al-Aqsa mosques compound in Old Jerusalem early on May 13, 2021. Several nights of clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli police, particularly around the Al-Aqsa mosque, spiralled early this week into a barrage of rocket fire from Gaza and deadly Israeli air strikes in retaliation. / AFP / ahmad gharabli
