A team of young Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip have found their own way of escaping the hardship of life in a refugee camp: parkour. The urban sport is popular here, with the Gaza Free Running Team aiming to compete internationally one day.
The gesture to reopen Israel's only goods crossing with the Gaza Strip comes as Egypt and the UN seek a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. Recent flare-ups in violence have threatened to escalate into war.
Israel's Supreme Court has ruled a Bedouin village can be demolished in the occupied West Bank. The ruling comes on the same day that the Israeli army closed the only crossing into the Gaza Strip.
A Palestinian militant who shot at Israeli troops in the Gaza Strip worked for the medical charity Doctors Without Borders, Israel has said. Officials have since criticized the aid group as "Terrorism Without Borders."
