After having feared a fresh war with Israel, people were relieved to be able to celebrate Eid in peace and comfort.

  • Gaza City Palestinians in Gaza observed Eid al-Fitr by visiting mosques to pray, spending time with family, and partaking in customary holiday fare.

After tensions between Israelis and Palestinians rose and fears of yet another conflict in the Gaza Strip increased, people exhaled a sigh of relief as they were allowed to celebrate Eid in peace and comfort.

Markets were busy with people getting ready for Eid al-Fitr in the final days of the holy month of Ramadan. To create a festive atmosphere for spending time with family, people purchase children’s clothing, and traditional treats, and furnish their homes.

Due to Israel’s disastrous 15-year land, sea, and air siege of Gaza, harsh economic and social conditions exist despite the displays of joy, family visits, and special meals during Eid.

Al Jazeera visited Gaza’s markets, streets, and residences to document how the population was getting ready for Eid al-Fitr.
