Palestinian youths transport a large Ramadan decoration known as fanus, in Gaza City on June 28, 2014 on the eve of the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. During Ramadan, Muslim believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset. Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. Photo by Ashraf Amra
