Palestinian workers recycle cement at a factory in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on December 6, 2009. Cement factories are pulverising the ruins of destroyed houses in war-battered Gaza in order to make new cement blocks. Due to the Israeli blockade, cement is scarce in the impoverished territory and shipments arriving from Egypt through smuggling tunnels are very expensive. . Photo By Abed Rahim Khatib
