Members of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas carry the body of Hamas official, Mazen Faqha who was freed by Israel in a 2011 prisoner swap during his funeral in Gaza City March 25, 2017. Faqha was released along with more than 1,000 other Palestinians in exchange for Gilad Shalit, an Israeli solder Hamas had detained for five years. Iyad al-Bozum, an interior ministry spokesman in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, said that gunmen opened fire on Faqha in the Tell al-Hama neighbourhood. Photo by Ashraf Amra
