Israeli security officers make their ways past buring tires as at least 10,000 Palestinian protesters marching against Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip clash with Israeli soldiers and border police at the Israeli Qalandiya checkpoint, between Jerusalem and Ramallah, on 25 July 2014. Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian man and wounded 150 other people during the massive protest in the West Bank in support of fellow Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The confrontation, and several smaller skirmishes throughout Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, came on Laylat al-Qadr, or Night of Destiny, when Muslims pray through the night as the holy month of Ramadan nears its end.
