Palestinian militants from the Islamic Jihad's armed wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, take position inside a watch-tower on the border of the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, on July 9, 2015. Two Israeli citizens are being held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, a situation that could lead to demands for a prisoner exchange between Israel and the Islamist militant group. Hamas, which took control of the Palestinian coastal enclave in 2007 and fought three wars with Israel since then, declined to confirm or deny it had the captives. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
