Egyptian bulldozers remove rubble from a building destroyed during the May 2021 conflict between Hamas and Israel, in Gaza City on June 5, 2021. Egypt sent an aid convoy to neighbouring Gaza with diggers, trucks and cranes to "prepare the ground for reconstruction" of the Palestinian enclave following a ceasefire between its Islamist rulers Hamas and Israel that brought an end to 11 days of deadly fighting. Egypt's heavily secured Rafah crossing is the Gaza Strip's only passage to the outside world not controlled by Israel. Sisi has pledged $500 million to help reconstruction efforts in densely populated Gaza, home to some two million people. Photo by Naaman Omar
