Palestinian children hold candles in a protest to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoner Bilal Kayed, who has been fasting for almost two months over his detention without trial, in Gaza seaport, on August 18, 2016. Kayed was to be released in June after serving a 14-and-a-half-year sentence for activities in the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), labelled a terrorist organisation by Israel, the European Union and the United States. Instead, Israeli authorities ordered that he remain in custody under the administrative detention law, which allows prisoners to be held without trial for renewable six-month periods.
