Palestinians use a ladder to climb over a section of Israel's separation barrier in the West Bank village of Al-Ram, as they try to avoid crossing Israeli-controlled checkpoints to reach the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem's Old City for traditional Friday prayers, the first of Islam's holy month of Ramadan on July 4, 2014. Israeli authority has forbidden access to Al-Aqsa mosque to muslim men under 50 years old and for muslim women under 40. Photo by Shadi Hatem
