Palestinian workers stand on a truck loaded with bags of cement after it entered the southern Gaza Strip from Israel through the Kerem Shalom crossing in Rafah on May 23, 2016. Israel said on May 22 it was lifting a ban imposed last month on private imports of cement to the Hamas-run Gaza Strip. The ban was imposed in early April, with Israel accusing Imad al-Baz, deputy director of the Hamas economy ministry, of diverting supplies. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
