Palestinian workers demonstrate against the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip during a rally marking May Day, on May 1, 2016, in Gaza City. Israel has maintained a blockade of Gaza since 2006, and recently banned the supply of cement and construction materials for the private sector, citing security concerns.
Palestinian workers crush stones and cement blocks from houses destroyed by Israeli shelling during the 50-day Israeli war in the summer of 2014, during the Workers’ Day, in Gaza city, on May, 1, 2016.
