Palestinians carry Palestinian flags during a rally calling for unity between the Gaza Strip and the West bank, in Gaza City. The Israeli Cabinet voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to release 90 Palestinian prisoners in an effort to shore up the moderate Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, in his power struggle with Islamic Hamas militants.
