Palestinian Saad al-Jamal holds one of his two lion cubs outside his family house at Al-Shabora refugee camp in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip March 19, 2015. Al-Jamal has eventually achieved his dream of raising lions at home after acquiring the two cubs, whose parents are believed to have been smuggled into Gaza through a tunnel along the border with Egypt nearly three years ago. His family have named the female cub Mona, an Arab name, while the male lion was named Alex. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
