Palestinian prisoner Samer al-Issawi, who held a hunger strike for several months, is greeted by people as he celebrates his release from an Israeli jail in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Issawiya December 23, 2013. Israel freed al-Issawi from jail on Monday, completing a deal agreed earlier this year in exchange for him halting a lengthy hunger strike that almost killed him. Photo by Saeed Qaq
