Palestinian farmers harvest a carrot crop, in Tammun village, near the West Bank town of Tubas, on April 30, 2015. The war between Israel and Gaza in the summer of 2014 drove the Palestinian economy of Gaza and the West Bank into its first contraction since 2006, the International Monetary Fund said in January 2015. The turmoil has left unemployment very high in both areas, 19 percent in the West Bank and 41 percent in Gaza. Photo by Nedal Eshtayah
