A Palestinian man reads the Koran, Islam's holy book, in front of his shop at market on the holy month of Ramadan at market in the Old City of the West Bank town of Hebron on June 22, 2016. Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. The fast is one of the five main religious obligations under Islam. More than 1.5 billion Muslims around the world will mark the month, during which believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset. Photo by Wisam Hashlamoun
