Palestinian girls read the Koran at a summer camp organised by the Islamist movement Hamas in Gaza City, 19 June 2011. About 20,000 students, both male and female, study under the instruction of 1,200 teachers. Hamas usually isolates male from female children in its summer camps. In the destroyed Gaza Strip under Israeli blockade, there are no places for children to enjoy their summer and entertain themselves. Photo by Ali Jadallah
