Palestinian women bake bread on a typical domed metal griddle for baking traditional flat bread, known locally in the region as the saj, in Gaza city on May 12, 2014, as part of a cultural exhibition to mark the 66th anniversary of the "Nakba" (catastrophe) on May 15. Nakba means "catastrophe" in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 66-years-ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
