Palestinian workers check a truck loaded with humanitarian aid as it arrives in the Palestinian town of Rafah through the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and the southern Gaza Strip on August 6, 2014. Israel pulled its last soldiers out of the Gaza Strip on 05 August after four weeks of fighting, as a temporary truce went into effect aimed at giving the sides three days to negotiate a longer-term deal. The Israeli army said its ground troops had withdrawn to the Israeli side of the border, where they would remain on alert and respond to any attacks. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
